Clinic-based ABA therapy for children with ASD
Helping Hands Family provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment to individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who have been referred for ABA services by a physician.
In treating individuals 18 months to 21 years, our clinics apply ABA in a structured, controlled environment. This type of environment can increase motivation in your child, encourage new and emerging skills and promote positive behaviors.
Our in-clinic setting also allows our clinicians to maintain the most consistency in day-to-day treatment as well as providing opportunities for therapists and supervisors to observe, confer and modify therapy plans as needed.
We apply ABA therapy in accordance with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s Professional Ethical Compliance Code and Guidelines for Responsible Conduct (BACB, 2016) as well as all local, state, and federal laws with regards to the provision of services.
From the first phone call or online inquiry to our clinic, you’ll have a seamless experience that starts with meeting us and learning about our program to make sure it’s a fit for your child and your family. An intake specialist will review what documentation you will need to gather. These include a doctor’s prescription with a diagnostic report and your insurance card.
Once documentation has been submitted and approved, we schedule an assessment with one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) that takes four to six hours in our clinic or in your home. We observe and assess your child’s skills during this time. We also encourage you to ask any and all questions.
Report and recommendations
Following the assessment, we provide a written report with recommendations for services. We also meet with you in person to walk you through the report. The report with our recommendations is then submitted to the insurance company for approval. After approval, services can start immediately.
