How can ABA help my child with Autism?

ABA is the only treatment for autism whose benefits have been consistently validated by independent scientific research. In fact, ABA has been endorsed as an effective treatment for autism by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United States Surgeon General.

My child doesn't have Autism, can ABA help with other disorders?

Behavior principles are used to treat a wide range of disorders from complex maladaptive behaviors to even simple problems. The only way to determine if ABA is right for you and your child is to schedule a consultation. At Family Solutions Counseling Center, we can refer you other healthcare providers that provide testing, counseling and medication management. It is our goal to provide you with a high quality service or refer you to someone who can assist you with your needs.

Should I wait for an official diagnosis before I start treatment?

Early intervention is the most effective way to speed up your child's development and reduce the symptoms of autism. Seek help as soon as you suspect something’s wrong. Don't wait to see if your child will catch up later or outgrow the problem. Don't even wait for an official diagnosis. The earlier children with Autism Spectrum Disorders get help, the greater their chance of treatment success will be.

Why choose center-based therapy?

Providing therapy in a controlled environment can allow our therapists the opportunity to utilize a more intensive form of instructional control. We realize that some behaviors are better served in clinical settings and we have created a stimuli rich environment to assist in treatment.

Why choose home-based or school-based therapy?

Providing therapy in the natural environment promotes better generalization to the changes in behavior. Home-based and school-basedtherapies allow the therapist to observe and change socially significant behaviors in the same place they occur. Home and school-based clients are selected based on the needs of the child and the availability of treatment. If you are interested in home or school-based treatment options they will be discussed during your initial consultation.

Will insurance cover consultation services?

Initial consultation services are not covered by insurance. Current consultation rates are set at $125.00 per hour.

Will Medicaid cover the cost of ABA Therapy

Yes, Louisiana Medicaid will fund ABA therapy. A psychological evaluation including a diagnosis and an order for ABA therapy is required for coverage of services.

Will private insurance cover the cost of ABA Therapy?

Many private insurance companies will cover ABA Therapy for individuals diagnosed with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome or Pervasive Developmental Disorder. A psychological evaluation and an order for ABA therapy are required for coverage of ABA services. Insurance coverage for services will be assessed prior to treatment or initial evaluation. As a courtesy, our office will check coverage for you.
