Cost Effective Treatment Plans
Unfortunately, insurance coverage for autism spectrum disorders varies by provider. North Jersey law requires your major medical insurance to pay for preliminary screening and diagnosis of learning disabilities, including Asperger’s and autism spectrum disorders. A diagnosis of childhood autism means that your child needs medication and therapeutic treatment. Your child needs physical therapy, exercise, speech and cognitive therapy, and occupational therapy. If your child’s primary diagnosis is autism or Asperger’s syndrome, your medical insurance provider requires that your child follow a behavior therapy treatment plan. Your health care insurance provider may require a second opinion from a behavioral health clinician in your local hospital.

Autism ranges from severe to mild. Some autistic children have cognitive impairments. Most have difficulty speaking and relating to others. Regressive autism is a loss of previously developed skills.

Achievement Behavior Analysis
Your insurance plan may set annual maximum limits on the amount they pay for ABA therapy as treatment for childhood autism. The maximum annual limit for diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance for a child under eight years old with an autism spectrum disorder is $50,000. A teenager may be limited to $20,000 per year until he or she is 19 years old.
Behavioral Intervention Plans
ABA therapy targets maladaptive behavior and teaches daily living skills to older teenagers with autism spectrum disorders. Focused on skills acquisition, behavioral intervention teaches discrete mathematics, problem solving, following directions, and verbal communication. ABA therapists develop individual learning plans for each child or teenager and teach parents how to train and supervise their special needs child with a developmental learning disorder.
Social skills are learned through interaction with others in groups. Your child is taught basic greetings, basic language skills, recognition and understanding of emotions. Appropriate behavior is reinforced through role-paying exercises. Your child is taught to recognize social cues and respond accordingly. Your child will be expected to rely on his social skills when alone in his or her home, in school, in a restaurant, and on trips. Coping skills and problem-solving skills are also taught.
ABA therapists intervening in school settings benefit your child by creating a behavioral intervention plan (BIP). Teachers can identify your child’s behavioral issues and identify the causes of inappropriate behavior. School counselors and teachers can recognize and change your child’s problem behavior.
Our therapists also teach and train teachers and help them develop effective teaching strategies for your child. Schools and teachers receive assessments, support, and answers to their questions. Our consultations can improve your child’s social skills and keep your child in the classroom learning.
