Welcome to The Behavioral Specialists Team

ABA Therapy You Can Trust

Welcome to Carolina and Maryland Behavioral Specialists (CMBS)! We are an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) group providing services in and around the Charleston, South Carolina and Baltimore, Maryland areas. CMBS is a minority-, employee-, and BCBA-owned small business. We are progressive, focused on compassionate care, and a neurodiversity-affirming practice. CMBS is made up of a diverse group of loving therapists, including many who are neurodiverse. We cannot wait to meet you!


The Behavioral Specialists Team strives to provide you and your loved ones with ABA therapy you can trust to make a difference. Our staff is highly trained and experienced with all types of learners. We primarily work with individuals aged 0-17. Due to insurance requirements, a diagnosis of autism is required for ABA coverage. However, please feel free to inquire about other diagnoses as we offer private pay options. Our methodology includes the Verbal Behavior (VB) Approach, errorless teaching, and making learning fun through positive reinforcement!

Initial Assessment

Getting Therapy Started

Each of our students are eligible for this service through their insurance, and is how we begin the therapy process. The initial assessment will be conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, or BCBA, and will identify the areas we feel we can support. Such goals will be included on your child's initial treatment plan, and include language, social interactions, behaviors of concern, and self-care skills. Schedule yours today!

Ongoing Therapy

Ongoing Therapy and Continued Support

Once our initial assessment is submitted and approved by your insurance, our team comprised of a Behavior Analyst and one or more Behavior Technicians can begin the ongoing therapy process. We are here for you as long as there are ongoing areas where we can assist. We look forward to a long-lasting and professional relationship!

Meet our Maryland State Director, Julia Dibos Turner! She has been working with the Carolina Behavioral Specialists team since 2015 as Regional Director and Behavior Analyst.
