ABA Therapy

What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based treatment that is effective for people of all ages (from early childhood through adulthood), can involve one-to-one teaching or group instruction, and is provided in a variety of settings (e.g., clinics, homes, and schools). The goal of ABA therapy is to increase helpful, meaningful behavior and skills, and to reduce behavior that is harmful or negatively affects the individual. Each program is written to meet the needs of each individual learner.

Reduce Challenging Behaviors: By equipping learners with effective communication skills to express their wants and needs, fostering safe and enjoyable interactions with themselves and others, and empowering them to independently accomplish daily tasks, substantial reductions in challenging or harmful behaviors are often observed.

More often than not, the core causes of these behaviors are unmet needs a learner is attempting to communicate. However, there can be several causes. ABA therapy offers valuable tools to comprehend the root of the behavior and better understand the learners' needs while providing them with the necessary skills to express their needs safely.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many hours of ABA therapy will my child receive?

The recommended hours for each child varies based on the child’s needs. This factor will be determined by a BCBA during the first initial assessment.

Does my child need ABA Therapy?

Each child and their needs are different. Before starting services a BCBA will do an initial assessment to help determine if and what services are recommended for your child.

How long does it take to start services?

We strive to provide services as soon as possible. However, there are many factors that contribute to the starting date. Our first step is to check your insurance and schedule an initial assessment with a BCBA. Our New Client Liaisons can be reached at: Info@bpiaba.com to learn more about our services and help you through the process!

How do I know if my insurance covers ABA therapy?

We have a wonderful team of New Client Liaisons who will be able to help you determine if your insurance covers ABA Therapy. They can be reached at: info@bpiaba.com or 888-308-3728. If your insurance does not cover ABA therapy, our team will give you additional resources to help you.

Does my child have to have a formal autism diagnosis to get treatment?

While ABA therapy has been empirically supported to improve many behaviors in general, insurance would not cover ABA therapy without ASD diagnosis.

At what age will ABA therapy be effective?

There are numerous research studies that have shown the effectiveness of ABA therapy at any age with or without ASD diagnosis.
