Finding out your child has an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis can be overwhelming. At Strident Healthcare, we’re here to help guide you through the process. After your child has completed an ADOS with a psychologist and has received a formal diagnosis, your path will look like this:
1. Initial Phone Meeting
Your first step will be to contact one of our friendly care administrators. Our care administrator will take down all of the necessary information to verify your insurance coverage for ABA services for your child.
2. Support Coordination
After your insurance has been verified, the care administrator will schedule your child for an initial skills assessment with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Your assigned BCBA will be the individual creating a treatment package tailored to your child’s specific needs.
3. Start of Service
A start of service meeting will be conducted after the formal report has been completed and a final schedule has been submitted for services for the hours you would like your child to have therapy. At this meeting you will review the treatment plan your BCBA has created. At this time the BCBA will also begin on-going training and supervision on your child's plan with the Behavior Technician to be providing services with your child.
4. On-Going Support
Your BCBA will meet with you regularly to ensure progress with therapy and provide on-going education and support about autism and ABA.
5. Skills Assessments
Per most insurance companies the individualized treatment plan will be updated and a skills assessment will be completed to track your child's progress approximately every six months.
