Why Choose FITG

Filling in the Gaps is unique because we aim to serve ABA and Autism services in underserved areas in Memphis, TN. Our Founder/Clinical Director, Ashley, believes that every child should have access to quality therapy and education services. This belief and passion is what created Filling in the Gaps ABA Therapy Center. Ashley is a Professional Special Education teacher and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Ashley began her experience in 2011 working in a locally owned Daycare while going to the University of Memphis to pursue an Education degree in Special Education. Her first experience working with students on the Autism Spectrum began shortly after while working as a Lead teacher in an Emotionally Disturbed classroom setting. Since that time, Ashley has worked in classrooms and both in-home and center-based settings. Ashley loves working with all age groups but her true passion is working with ages birth to 6. She believes that early intervention sets the foundation in neurodivergent individuals. Filling in the Gaps was created because Ashley has a deep interest in Special Education equity while also serving the community in a positive way.
