No. ABA is an empirically validated treatment method for behavior change. However, many insurance companies will only cover ABA services with an Autism (ASD) diagnosis. We offer consultation services for those that can’t access ABA through their insurance.
Most major insurance companies will not authorize ABA for clients without an ASD diagnosis.  Medicaid is the exception and will authorize services for those that can prove medical necessity.

We currently accept Aetna, Anthem/BCBS, Cigna, Kaiser, Medicaid, and United Healthcare.

If insurance does not cover ABA services for you, we are happy to discuss sliding scale options for private pay.

We typically work with clients between 10 and 30 hours per week. The individualized recommendation is based on the assessment conducted by the Behavior Analyst.
A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) will come regularly to work with your child and will implement the treatment plan after it has been reviewed and approved by you. They will work on the goals set for your child and track their progress. We do our best to incorporate therapy into a child’s natural routine to make ABA not feel like therapy for your child. We minimize time spent doing discrete trials and embed working on goals into the client’s natural environment.

We provide services either in the cleint’s home and community settings (i.e. school, recreational locations, stores, etc.), at our clinic or a combination of the two. This flexibility in treatment location lends itself well to providing services on a regular basis and tends to be more manageable for the family. It also allows for greater generalization of skills across locations.

You can expect a functional behavior assessment to be conducted, which will outline hypothesized function(s) of problem behavior.  With this information we will create a behavior plan that will include: treatment goals, implementation strategies, and recommended service hours. Each client presents a unique situation and therefore service recommendations can vary from single consultation services to 40 hours per week of direct service. A progress report will be completed every six months to evaluate the client’s response to treatment, update goals, and modify treatment recommendations as necessary.

Direct services begin with an assessment of the individual’s problem behavior. We then develop a behavior plan to meet the client/family/stakeholder’s needs. From there we provide extensive training implementation and data collection as well as an ongoing analysis of behavior via a Registered Behavior Technician. Direct services also include parent training.

Consultation services are indirect services focused primarily on caregiver training and support. We strive to provide the stakeholders with the skills necessary to implement the recommended strategies to modify the client’s behavior. This service includes an assessment and treatment plan, which is intended to be implemented directly by those closest to the client, rather than a behavior technician.

This answer varies significantly depending on your particular situation (including the target behavior, the severity of the behavior, and the commitment of the caregivers). For some clients, behavior change can occur as quickly as six months. Other clients may require ongoing treatment to continually develop skills and reduce problem behaviors as new challenges present themselves in their ever-changing world.

Some of the typical behaviors we address are: aggression, tantrums, non-compliance, off-task behaviors, academic engagement issues, disruptive behaviors, and repetitious behaviors/speech patterns, among others. In addition to behavior reduction, we also work on skill acquisition (ie. communication/social/daily living skills, academic goals, and other adaptive behaviors).
