What We Do
We provide ABA services for Early Childhood Intervention (1 to 5 years) as well as for older clients. ABLE tailors each service plan to the individual needs of the client and their family’s needs with a focus on natural environment teaching and generalization.
For clients with insurance coverage accepted by ABLE, we will verify your insurance coverage, guide you through the intake process, perform a thorough assessment of your child’s needs, and design an individualized treatment plan for your child and family with your concerns in mind.
We then submit this to your insurance company with our recommendations for the services we believe are required to make the most progress for your child. Once your insurance company approves the request, we work with you to create a weekly schedule of sessions with one of our trained behavior technicians.
Individualized session schedules range from 10 hours to 38 hours per week including up to 8 hours of social skills training in the community on Saturdays. Our average schedule includes 4 hours each weekday and 6 hours on Saturdays.
Every client’s program is continually monitored and supervised by a BCBA who guides the behavior technician, evaluates the daily data collected, makes changes to the plan as needed, and guides the parents to participate to their best ability as their time allows.
Some of the most important services we provide include:
- Assessment and evaluation
