ABA Autism Services by Damar

Many parents find Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) while searching for answers to early signs of autism. For example, lack of communication/speech, trouble toilet training, food aversion, or sleep issues such as not sleeping or waking up multiple times. Their search leads to a diagnosis of autism—and that’s where Damar ABA Autism Services comes in. Backed by Damar’s 50+ years of experience serving children with developmental disabilities, we do whatever it takes for families facing the challenges of raising a child with autism. We can provide a full range of services—from the initial diagnosis of autism to an intensive, collaborative ABA assessment, which leads to the development of an individualized treatment program tailored to each child’s needs.

SENSORY INTEGRATION

ABA therapy is used to treat individuals diagnosed with autism or other developmental disabilities using evidence-based practices such as discrete trial training, natural environment training, and antecedent-based interventions. It is the only form of therapy that has been proven effective and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics for the treatment of autism. ABA therapy can be done in multiple settings and with multiple individuals to generalize skills. Damar ABA has categorized the types of treatment into three programs.

Getting started in ABA therapy can be overwhelming, and each child experiences different steps along the way dependent on his/her insurance and family situation. Below you will find the typical intake process and what to expect along the way. The average timeframe from initial call to the child’s first class is three months or more.

1
Initial Contact

Our Director of Admissions will talk with you and learn a little bit about your child while helping navigate you through this journey so that you don’t feel like you’re on an island.

2
Tour/Initial Interview

You will meet with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to discuss your child’s strengths, challenges, and previous history. You will also receive a tour of your child’s potential clinic space.

3
Evaluation and Observation

The BCBA will conduct an assessment best suited for your child and observe your child’s social interactions, communication skills, and interfering behaviors.

4
Choose a Program

The BCBA will recommend a specific treatment package that is clinically best for your child and may provide additional general suggestions. If your child does not qualify for ABA services, the BCBA will provide recommendations for alternative services.

5
Assessment and Report

Based on the BCBA’s assessment, the Program Director will work with the Director of Assessments to request an insurance authorization for ABA therapy. The Program Director will also send you a copy of the assessment and report.

6
Approvals

Once Damar ABA has received approval, you will be informed and given a financial agreement that outlines costs and payment plan options, as well as a proposed start date and schedule.

7
First Day

Before or on the child’s first day, you will attend a meeting where your child’s Program Manager will be present to ask and answer any questions, present the family with a handbook, and collect any necessary signatures.

The journey of raising a child with or without developmental challenges is full of ups and downs. You can expect a team of caring professionals to help support you as your child’s development unfolds. We will celebrate successes alongside you while helping you tackle the many challenges that could accompany raising a child with autism.

We provide you with the training, resources, and support you need to successfully participate in your child’s treatment program. With help from Damar ABA, children can learn and achieve, and families can find the peace of mind that comes from having answers, support, and resources.
