It is manualized in handbooks for professionals and for parents, and it can be implemented by parents, in the home with intermittent support from a trained professional.
Byte is an organization obsessed with what keeps us all smiling, dental health. Autistic children are likely to suffer many more oral health problems, including tooth decay, gum disease. On top of that, sensory sensitivities also make effective oral hygiene routines and visits to the dentist challenging. To aid parents, Byte published an educational guide on dental care for neurodivergent children.

Many types of private health insurance are required to cover ABA services. All Medicaid plans must cover treatments that are medically necessary for children under the age of 21. If a doctor prescribes ABA therapy and says it is medically necessary for your child, Medicaid must cover the cost.
Yes. Your child must be officially diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using the GARS or ADOS evaluations.
Yes, we do, and it is a lengthy one since the need in our community is so great, but the resources are so few. If you are expecting an autism diagnosis for your child, we recommend you come by our ABA therapy clinic to complete an intake packet, tour the facility, and meet with Laura or Larry to review any questions you may have. That way, you are already on the list by the time your child receives their diagnosis.
Two! Ms. Amber Boozer, BCBA and Clinical Director and Ms. Mary Gainey, BCBA. You can learn more about them on our "Meet Our Staff" page.
One of our BCBAs will perform an initial assessment of your child and develop a recommended treatment plan for ABA services based on their time together. The BCBA then requests approval for those hours from the insurance company. Our office is open from 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday - Friday, and scheduled therapy hours may occur during those times.
We ask that you send a backpack with your child containing the following items (as needed): lunchbox (if they will be there over the lunch hours), snacks, sippy cup/water bottle, sunscreen/bug spray (this can stay at the clinic), pull-ups/diapers and wipes, change of clothes, jacket (for colder months), and swimsuit/towel (for warmer months). Please be sure to clearly label ALL of your child's belongings.
On your child's first day, you may walk them into the clinic to help ease their transition. After that, we request that you remain in your vehicle while their tech comes to the car to check their temperature and take them inside. This makes it easier for everyone to say goodbye! This is also our same procedure at drop-off: just pull up, and the tech will bring your child to the car, buckle them in, and you'll be on your way!
We implement parent trainings as a mandatory part of each child's ABA therapy program, and these should occur once a month for one hour. These can be done in the office or virtually. Some parents will be expected to collect data at home, if directed by their child’s BCBA. In fact, continually missing parent training sessions or not collecting home data as directed by the BCBA could result in the discontinuation of ABA services for your child.
