our story


Morning Star is a company that was born out of a discomfort in just meeting expectations. We just sat in one too many meetings where we were told that “treatment was good enough.” We were convinced that our clients deserved better and we could do better. At that point, Morning Star became a rally cry to best practice and started to define the future of what behavior analysis looks like. We wanted our clients’ limits to be their limits, not resources around them or the background of any one team member.

At Morning Star, we boldly lay down our pride and commit fully to collaboration with one another and the field. And oftentimes, that’s big news. Look below to keep up with recent news and read our press releases.
