Our Story

Julie Hudak and Tara Deringor, both licensed Physical Therapists with backgrounds in business, met while sharing an office at an outpatient pediatric therapy facility. They hit it off right away and found that they had a lot in common. Perhaps the most important common factor was their passion to change the trajectory of children and families lives.

Prior to forming ABA Abilities, Julie and Tara were independent contractors in Early Intervention, working with families of kids in the birth to 3 age range.  Then, in 2004, they founded TEIS Early Intervention, an Early Intervention service provider working with children 0-3 years-old and now serving Southwestern, PA.

At ABA Abilities, our clinicians and therapists share the passion that led Julie and Tara to become Early Interventionists. Our clinicians and therapists consult experts and utilize a wide variety of resources within and across disciplines to ensure we meet our shared mission: to provide individualized, family-centered treatment to help children and families reach their full potential.

We are always committed to building strong relationships, rooted in mutual respect, with our peers, families, and our community. Our team is dedicated to offering a customized experience, so that every child reaches full potential.
