How to Begin Services

Step 1: Intake


Complete the intake form or email Upon open enrollment, our dedicated intake team will mail your family the proper paperwork  & ensure insurance coverage. Intake paperwork will ask you to provide basic background information about your child, proof of ASD diagnosis and health insurance. Once intake is received, ABA Therapeutics will contact you to arrange for a tour of our center. 

Step 2: Assessment  


A Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will be assigned to your child's case. The BCBA will conduct assessments and develop individualized programming. ABA assessments typically including direct assessment (with child present), indirect assessment (file review, parent/ guardian interview) and the treatment plan write-up. 

Step 3: Treatment

Based on ​your child's assessment results, the BCBA will develop a treatment plan (TP) with individualized goals and teaching methods. The TP will include recommended treatment hours and location(s) (e.g. home, community, center). Treatment hours typically range from 10-40 hours per week. Before ABA treatment begins, the TP will be submitted to insurance for coverage approval.
