This time of year, many families are getting close to meeting (or have already met) their insurance deductible for the year. When you’ve met your deductible, your health insurance really kicks in and starts covering the majority of your out-of-pocket medical expenses.
For families who’ve been considering ABA therapy for their child with autism or who have just received a diagnosis, now is the ideal time to get started on a brighter future through the gold standard autism treatment.
A quick introduction to ABA therapy
ABA therapy, also known as Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, has been used successfully for many decades and is now covered by most insurance plans across the country. As you might guess, it’s based on Behavior Analysis, the science that seeks to understand a person’s behavior and what influences it.
Once an ABA therapist understands what influences a child’s behavior, they apply and refine that data and combine it with effective teaching techniques to help children learn new skills based on positive behaviors and reduce unwanted behaviors that get in the way of a child reaching their full potential.
ABA therapy benefits all the essential areas of a child’s development, from communication and language to social, self-help, and academic skills. For the greatest, long-term impact, it should be started as early as two years old, when children’s minds are still being formed and most receptive to learning. The ultimate aim is to help children be more independent and self-confident.
