Give Birmingham: The Learning Tree

For 40 years, The Learning Tree has demonstrated a high rate of success using the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) approach in educational programs and the management of the most severe behaviors. The Learning Tree offers a community-based residential option for children and adolescents, ages 6-21, with significant behavioral challenges. These educational services are delivered on one of our community-based school campuses. Individualized instructional programs are provided in a nurturing, supportive environment using ABA principles. Our program provides each child 24-hour care in a home-like setting that is suited to their unique and specific needs. Other services include vocational skill training, advanced medical services, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dietary services and more. Residential programs are located in Jacksonville, Birmingham, Tallassee and Mobile, Alabama. Educational services are certified by the Alabama Department of Education and homes are certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health and Intellectual Disabilities. 

Growing Independence Behavioral Services outpatient clinics are available in Anniston, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Mobile, Alabama. ABA therapy in a clinic setting is available for preschool and school-age children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.  For program details, questions about eligibility, insurance coverage, and funding please call the referral line at (334) 425-6418 or email us at
