Do I need to provide anything for my child?

We provide all therapy materials needed for the child’s program and the clinic is stocked with a wide variety of age-appropriate toys, games, and activities. You are welcome to send in personal items to individualize your child’s therapy space such as pictures, or sensory items if you choose.

  • Each child should bring a packed lunch each day, including a drink, and appropriate snacks as desired.
  • If your child is not potty trained, please bring a supply of diapers or pull-ups and wipes.
  • All children, regardless of age, should have a change of clothes on hand that are appropriate for the season.
How do you determine goals and what my child will work on?

Each child will be evaluated by a BCBA using an appropriate assessment(s) for their age and skill level. These assessments along with parent/caregiver interview and input will guide programming and goals that will be implemented in your child’s therapy sessions.

How do you handle Challenging Behavior?

Our therapists are trained to manage challenging behavior and work with their BCBA to determine the function of the behavior. Based on this information and observation, the BCBA will develop an individualized behavior intervention plan that all team members will be trained to implement consistently. All staff members are trained in Safety Care techniques including crisis prevention and crisis management.

What does RBT stand for?

An RBT is Registered Behavior Technician. And RBT is a certified paraprofessional who works under the supervision of board certified behavior analysts or as part of a clinical team.

What does BCBA stand for?

A BCBA is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. This is a master’s level certification. They provide clinical oversight and training for our RBTs and implementation of therapy programs. 

How do I communicate with my child’s RBT or BCBA?

We understand that communication about your child’s day and progress is very important. You will be provided with a daily summary of your child’s day and the RBT will communicate with you at pick up about what they worked on and how the day went.

  • You will meet with your child’s BCBA at minimum 1 time per month, and more often if your schedule allows. You can contact your child’s BCBA via email, or phone and text if you have any questions or concerns.
Do you offer training for parents?

Parent and caregiver training is highly encouraged and offered on a consistent basis! Parents and caregivers play a crucial role in transitioning the child’s treatment plan to the family home and daily life, and because of this, they need to be actively engaged in the process. Our BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) will provide parents with the scientific tools and strategies of ABA, direction and training in behavior functions, and methods to develop and reinforce skills and routines outside of the therapy program.

Do you work on potty training?

Absolutely! This is a very important milestone for any child and often a priority for parents and caregivers. We have many successful methods and strategies to address toileting needs and will work with you and your child to determine the best fit.

What if we are having challenges in the home?

Your child’s BCBA will discuss challenges you are experiencing and determine if a home visit is appropriate. From there the BCBA will work with you to determine if in-home parent training or in-home ABA therapy and consultation are appropriate to meet your child’s and your family’s needs.

What is the autism mandate?

The autism mandate requires specific health insurers to provide people under 21 years old insurance for the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders and for the treatment of ASD.

Will my insurance cover ABA therapy?

Insurance can be complicated and confusing, and we are here to help you through this experience. Our team will check your current policy as well as alternate funding sources if required. We accept insurance coverage from most providers including Anthem, Aetna, Caresource, United Healthcare, Cigna, Medicaid, and many more. Our billing department is knowledgeable in handling all insurance needs from billing and claims to authorizations.
