Steps to Begin Your ABA Therapy Journey

Our enrollment process is easy and stress-free. We look forward to your journey with us!

Getting Started Is Easy

1

Initiating The Journey

Speak with one of our Outreach and Family Support Coordinators to assess whether your child would benefit from our early intervention and school-readiness autism therapy model. Our team will describe what ABA therapy is, the Rise Up Model, and assist with collecting documentation to get the process started. We will also verify your insurance benefits and talk about financial assistance and payment plans to ensure ABA therapy is affordable and accessible for your family. 

2

Initiating Assessment

Once you decide you would like to move forward with services, an initial assessment begins. Following approval (i.e., authorization) from your insurance provider, our Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBS) will conduct an assessment in our autism center. This assessment allows us to create an individualized treatment plan for your child. The personalized treatment plan will be discussed with your family to ensure the family's goals are aligned with the clinicians.

3

Insurance Approval

Following the initial assessment/intake, the clinician will submit the treatment plan and medical diagnosis report to your insurance provider to request treatment authorization. Depending on your insurance, approval to begin therapy could take a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

Embarking On The Journey

Once insurance authorization is received and we are approved to start therapy, your child’s journey begins. Your child’s support team includes a BCBA and an RBT, both dedicated to helping your child achieve their goals and reach age-appropriate milestones.

FAQ

Who is eligible for your services?

Our services are tailored for children aged 2-6 diagnosed with autism. In other words, we service children prior to them entering first grade.

How can I check my insurance benefits?

We are in network with BCBS IL, Aetna, Optum/United, Compsych, and Magellan. Families can reach out to us directly to conduct a benefits check on your behalf. Families can also call member services on the back of their insurance card to verify insurance benefits on their own.

What can I expect during the initial phone consultation?

The initial consultation is a conversation to understand your child's needs and determine if our services are the right fit for your family.
