Have Questions?

ABA therapy is the leading approach for improving developmental deficiencies associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). By focusing on human behavior, ABA therapy increases learning and functional behaviors while minimizing problem behaviors.
Every child and case of autism is unique, and some children experience more significant progress with ABA therapy than others. However, studies show those who receive two or more years of intensive behavioral intervention make substantial progress and can participate in school and social activities at the same level as their peers.
Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) is a popular diagnostic tool used by specialists to assess ASD by delving into key indicators — like communication, social interaction, and repetitive behaviors. This natural, play-based assessment leverages a variety of toys and activities and lasts about 45 minutes to an hour. Our expert clinicians conduct ADOS-2, the updated version of ADOS, at our centers.
The Childhood Autism Spectrum Test or CAST (formerly the “Childhood Asperger’s Syndrome Test”) is a 37- 40 item, yes or no evaluation aimed at parents. The questionnaire was developed by the ARC (the Autism Research Centre) at the University of Cambridge, for assessing the severity of autism spectrum symptoms in children. It has proved to be a good test for screening autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and social communication problems.
M-CHAT™ (Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers) is a screening tool parents can use to assess ASD in children aged 16 to 30 months. Children who received a high-risk score should be evaluated by an autism specialist. ABC offers an M-CHAT screening tool as the first step in the diagnostic process.
We are in-network with most major insurance companies and working to become a network provider for additional networks. When you’re ready, ABC will help you navigate the insurance process by verifying coverage and benefits, discussing the treatment plan with the insurance company, and pre-authorizing benefits. We’ll also bill the insurance company directly to make your life easier.
After you submit your three-minute new client application, we’ll call you to discuss your family’s needs and help you explore all options. Next, we’ll schedule a visit to our facility for you and your child, as well as an ADOS evaluation, if necessary. Finally, after completing intake paperwork, you and your child will meet their BCBA for an assessment and begin preparing for the first day of therapy. Together, we’ll create a better future for your child.
