About Hi-5 ABA

Hi-5 ABA’s founders began as “ABC Behavior” first developing Hi-5’s current system in 2015 and since then has operated businesses offering behavioral therapy services under the name “ABC Behavior.” As of December 31, 2018, ABC Behavior operated 10 businesses in Virginia, which currently serve clients in Northern and Central Virginia. Hi-5 ABA aims to expand that model into most of the country.

A successful ABA practice requires extensive expertise in two areas—business administration and clinical application. The Hi-5 system is designed to provide comprehensive administrative support to the BCBA who wants to own her own practice while remaining free to concentrate where her professional skills are most needed — clinical supervision, training, and client care.

Why Franchise With Hi-5?

Hi-5 works diligently to continue ABC’s disciplined efforts toward earning and maintaining an excellent reputation in the industry. Hi-5 prioritizes professional ethical standards; strict integrity with respect to records, disclosures, and claims; and genuine care toward client families, company personnel, and other industry participants.

Franchisees share the benefits and responsibilities inherent in the Hi-5’s systems, culture, and relationships within the industry. At the same time, franchisees own and operate their own practices, enjoy clinical independence to design and execute treatment plans, and determine their own pace for direction, growth, and business style.

Hi-5 and its affiliate processing team work hand-in-hand with franchisees to develop business plans, recruit staff, obtain appropriate credentials, relate effectively with insurers, make and collect claims, and to manage payroll, accounting, and cashflow.

Hi-5 Services

Franchisee BCBAs enjoy clinical and operational independence. They make their own decisions related to staffing, caseloads, schedules, and treatment plans. Hi-5 and its affiliate processing team facilitate BCBA clinical-focus by providing a broad array of administrative support:

  • Incorporation*
  • Credentialing
  • Financial Reports
  • Technician Recruiting
  • Payroll
  • Billing
  • Cash Flow Assistance
  • Clinical Consultation

*Incorporation is optional through other third parties if franchisee so chooses.


Who owns the franchise?
The franchise is for an ABA practice that is 100% owned and independently operated by the franchisee. Hi-5 and its processing affiliates provide support services that help a franchise with the day-to-day tasks.

I am a BCBA. How much experience do I need to be considered for a franchise opportunity?
Field experience in home-based ABA therapy better equips a BCBA to own and operate a clinical practice. However, because Hi-5 provides training and highly-skilled clinical consultation, even a newly-licensed therapist may qualify to begin a new franchise.

Our Ideal Candidate

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is one of the quintessential services that help children with autism and their families grow. We're looking for entrepreneurs who understand the needs of the families and have the experience to administer the business so the clinician may focus on training staff and serving the children. The ideal candidate would have a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification, professional experience in a related field or personal experience with ABA and management experience.
