FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) are licensed behavior therapists with graduate degrees in the field. They design and oversee a child's behavioral program to determine what interventions will help the child learn new skills. Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) work directly with the child to implement the BCBA's plan in the home.
Currently, we are working within Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey and are planning to expand to additional counties at a later date. If you are currently located outside this area, we may be able to suggest other providers that serve children and families near your location.
WHAT IS ABA THERAPY?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a behavioral therapy designed to help us study and analyze behaviors and learning. This evidence-based therapy is widely used to improve the skills of children on the autism spectrum and with other behavioral difficulties. For more information on ABA, see Autism Speaks below.

MY INSURANCE NETWORK?
At this time, we are working to build relationships with insurance companies as an in-network provider. We would currently be considered an out-of-network provider and can assist you with checking with your insurance company to determine the out of pocket cost to you.
DO YOU HAVE A WAITLIST?
No, there is not currently a waitlist for our services. We understand that behavior services are often sought when a child is in crisis and cannot wait an extended period to begin therapy. We are in active communication with community providers and families to ensure we are able to meet you in the home for assessment and treatment planning as soon as possible after services are requested.
