ABA Parents' Roadmap

No on knows your child better than you.

Does your child seem distant? Does it seem his or her speech or social interactions are different than other children their age? Or, does he or she have behavioral problems and engage in frequent, long-lasting tantrums?

While each child does develop at their own pace, you should take action if you’re concerned. Deciding to “wait and see”, hoping he or she will “grow out of it”, may delay necessary treatment, should there be a problem.

Could it be Autism? What is Autism?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a group of developmental disorders that includes a wide range, or “spectrum”, of symptoms, skills and levels of disability. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates 1 in 54 children has been identified with some form of ASD.

ASD is often characterized by:

Some persons with autism experience mild symptoms, while others are severely disabled. The spectrum is very broad and no two cases are the same.

ASD symptoms to look for

Thankfully, there are treatments and services that can significantly improve a person’s symptoms and quality of life. If your child is on the autism spectrum, early diagnosis and treatment can make a world of difference that affects the resto of their life, and yours.

First steps for ABA therapy...

Speak with your Pediatrician

Talk with your Pediatrician about ASD screening if you notice any of the symptoms provided or if your parental intuition is telling you something is not quite right.

Your Pediatrician may recommend an ASD screening b a specialist. Specialists who can diagnose ASD include neurological Pediatricians, developmental Pediatricians, or child Psychiatrists.

Learn about ABA

If your child is diagnosed with ASD, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the only proven treatment to improve symptoms.

The objective of ABA treatment is to analyze a child’s behavior, and then develop and systematically apply ABA techniques to achieve meaningful change. In many states, including New Jersey, ABA is deemed “medically necessary” for persons with autism.

Contact your insurance

Call your insurance carrier to determine if your policy covers ABA. Ask to be connected to the carrier’s dedicated ABA department, if possible.

Determine the associated costs of ABA treatment, including your deductible, co-payment, co-insurance and maximum out-of-pocket expense. You will then need to determine which ABA providers are in your network.

What to expect when starting ABA therapy

While many ABA providers attempt to rapidly assess a child’s skills and begin treatment, Rinn ABA Consulting takes a more measured approach.
