Admissions Process

Austin Action Behavior

Getting Started with ABA Therapy

Action Behavior has immediate space available for children for Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Our full-time, clinic-based therapists are ready to help.  As you may know, the sooner a child receives early intervention services, the greater the chance is that they’ll be able to be mainstreamed into a school environment.

Every child is unique, but a decade of research has established that early intensive behavioral intervention is the most effective therapy for children on the Autism Spectrum.

The enrollment steps are easy, and explained briefly below.  If you have any questions, please contact us.

Working with Health Insurance for Applied Behavior Analysis

Action Behavior Centers is an in-network provider with leading health insurers in the State of Texas for applied behavior analysis.

Applied behavior analysis therapy is a covered benefit by virtually all private health insurance plans in Texas thanks to the Texas Insurance Mandate for Autism.  This means that if you have health insurance for your child with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and other companies you will likely be able to have ABA therapy provided in an affordable way.

What this means for you is that insurance will pay for intensive ABA therapy services to help a child that is on the autism spectrum.  For young children (less than 10 years of age), there is no maximum limit on the level of benefits, so many young children with significant deficits can obtain full-time therapy.  Children older than 10 can also receive necessary therapy, although sometimes with less hours per week.

Unfortunately at this time there is no coverage for Medicaid plans (StarKids, Superior).  We strongly encourage families whose children have received a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder to consider finding private health insurance through a family member or their employer.  Many companies offer health insurance at affordable rates if you contact your human resources department.  We’ve helped many families navigate this process, and we’d be happy to do this for you.

Decades of clinical research and hands-on experience with applied behavior analysis demonstrate that our autism treatment approach can help your child overcome their developmental delays.  The process of getting started is straightforward.

Please call our office (512) 572-0157 or use the chat feature in the lower right corner.  We’d be happy to discuss your insurance policy, benefits, and eligibility.  We answer the phone and chat after hours – we know you are busy during the day!
