THE POWER OF ABA

Time Commitment

ABA has been shown to be an effective therapy for a variety of populations especially individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Based on recommendations from current ABA literature and researchers, we require at least 6 hours per week of direct ABA therapy for significant improvements to be seen

Financial Commitment

Under insurance, ABA operates as other medical providers where deductibles may have to be met prior to insurance coverage. We can help by contacting your insurance and verifying your benefits so you have updated information!

Our ABA Model

Anna Behavioral Services practices the tiered model approach to ABA therapy. This model consists of a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) and a registered behavior technician (RBT). A BCBA evaluates the client based on family concerns and direct observation/interaction, develops goals/objectives, writes treatment plans, trains caregivers and RBTs and supervises the implementation of treatment protocols by the RBT(s). A RBT provides direct one on one therapy to the client based on the goals developed in the treatment plan and receives supervision from a BCBA weekly based on the client’s needs.
