  • The moment I reached out to David I found him to be efficient, professional and transparent. He was able to send through some fantastic resumes within a couple of weeks, answered any questions I had and made this process as easy as possible. We now have a fantastic Clinical Director thanks to David!

    REACH Behavior and Development Center - Bahrain
  • We have been working with ABA Recruitment for more than 2 years and they have always been responsive and attentive. We have recruited several candidates from David and he has a good understanding of the Middle East and culture. David is supportive and efficient.

    Hemam Learning Support Centre - Dubai
  • Getting the right team together is really important for a successful ABA programme, and it is often a difficult and time consuming job that can hold up getting started. David has recruited therapists for families in both the UK and around the world that I’ve worked with. His communication and understanding of the process is second to none. I will continue to recommend ABA recruitment for their professional and personable service.

    James Adcock, BCBA - London
  • We have worked with David for a number of years, as we have tried to find tutors for our son’s modified ABA programme. We have found David to be most helpful and supportive. He is always very positive and has the knack of finding tutors who bond well with our son and fit into the existing team. David is very personable and easy to work with. We are so grateful to him for all his efforts.

    Sarah and Paul Goodwin - London
  • Prior to our contact with ABA Recruitment's team we spent 2 months without success. It was very difficult on us to be unable to tend to our son's requirement. Fortunately, we made the connection and it was the best call.

    Parent - Dubai, UAE
  • Dealing with ABA Recruitment has been very helpful and up to the best of our expectation. Our requirements are very difficult to fulfil due to our geographical location, however, the team's determination facilitated what we thought almost impossible.

    Parent - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
  • Excellent service with a professional and helpful team. I had been looking for ABA/VB tutors for 9 months! ABA Recruitment found a tutor for me in just over a month of my signing contract with them.

    Shujaat - Maidenhead, UK
  • I have used ABA Recruitment for several years. I found them helpful and their fees reasonable. The ABA tutors I have had from them have been very dedicated, helpful and determined to see progress. They really wanted to make a change and would go out of their way to help my daughter. One of them taught my daughter to ride a bicycle which she now loves to do independently. I have recommended them to so many parents as they are able to find you a tutor near to where you live that matches your requirements, they also take references on your behalf.

    Ruth - London
