Does Advanced Behavior Analysis have therapy hour minimums?
The short answer, no.
Many of the kids with whom we work are in various therapies full time. Parents are told by their doctors, family members, teachers, society etc. that their child needs all of these interventions in order to reach their full potential, or to produce the best possible outcomes. While this may be true to an extent, it is still incredibly important for all children to have free time to play, explore, and learn in the natural environment without being directed by adults.
This is why we do not have therapy hour requirements at ABA Inc. we make hour recommendations based on medical necessity, but counsel families to utilize an amount of therapy that feels realistic and manageable for their unique individual needs. We realize that everyone experiences seasons in life, and what a child and family can manage may ebb and flow. We see the most effective long term results when children and their families feel seen, supported, and respected.

What is the process for getting started with ABA therapy?
Once insurance authorization for beginning the assessment process has been received by our billing team, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will be assigned to the case. During the first meeting, the BCBA will get to know the family, the concerns of the family, get to know the child, observe the child and use assessment tools to determine what strengths the child already possesses and what skills can be worked on to further grow the existing strengths. Each company uses different assessment tools; we use the ABLLS, Vineland III, VB-MAPP and AFLS assessments.
While we may not use all assessments, the BCBA will determine which assessments are appropriate for the child based on the information given from the parent. After assessments are completed, the BCBA will create an individualized treatment plan that is reviewed by a regional manager to ensure the plan follows neurodiversity affirming practice in line with our values. Once the treatment plan is approved by the parent, the treatment plan will be submitted to insurance for approval. After approval, a team will be created and assigned and services can begin.
