Our Services

Center-Based
ABA Therapy

Center-Based Therapy at Action Behavior Centers focuses on a combination of Discrete Trial Training (DTT) techniques and Natural Environment Training (NET). This combined approach helps children accomplish their individualized goals across specific developmental domains such as functional communication, behavior reduction, and self-help skills.

ABC At Home

ABC at Home targets a combination of structured-style learning through Discrete Trial Training (DTT) and Natural Environment Training (NET) in a home setting. An at-home environment allows for generalization of self-help and adaptive skills within real-life scenarios alongside more frequent family guidance.

ABC After School

Our After School Treatment Program offers school-age children an environment to learn and interact with peers. Our clients experience success with ongoing family guidance, consistent access to quality therapy, and a collaborative therapeutic approach with Teachers, SLPs, PT, and OTs.

Not available at every location.

Frequently Asked Questions?

What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy?

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.

Does ABA therapy work?

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.

What is ADOS and ADOS-2?

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.

What is CAST?

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.

While diagnosis of typical autism will usually occur in early childhood, Aspergers syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders may be missed until much later. The Childhood Autism Syndrome Test (CAST) allows detection of such cases which may need further assessment.

What is M-CHAT?

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.

Does insurance cover ABA therapy?

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.

How do I get started with Action Behavior Centers?

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.
