Trauma-aware, neurodiversity-affirming ABA focuses on understanding and supporting the individual needs of clients with autism through a lens of sensitivity to past trauma and an appreciation for neurodiversity. This approach integrates trauma-informed care principles with traditional ABA techniques, emphasizing safety, trust, and empowerment. It aims to create a therapeutic environment that respects each client's neurological differences, prioritizes consent, and uses positive, affirming strategies to encourage learning and growth. This method seeks to promote healing while supporting the development of new skills in a respectful and inclusive manner.
This is more than a question for us. It is an attitude and intention that we breathe, envision and strive to make possible for each individual and his/her family. Using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, we individually develop a program model that treats each person for their own unique set of needs.
We address the characteristics of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) and other neurodevelopment and behavioral disorders from the perspective that all children can learn. It is up to us, as accountable professionals, through on-going collaboration with other professional service providers to discover the learning modalities that will enhance the skill development (cognitive, behavioral, and developmental) of each individual. Once these modalities are identified, we are then able to put the structures in place to maximize the individual’s potential across people, settings and environments.
We're currently in-network with Pacific Source, Samaritan, BlueCross Blue Shield, MODA and Providence. We can use out of network benefits or arrange single case agreements with AETNA and Optum. Please be aware that in order to qualify for services your primary insurance must cover ABA. If you have an insurance company not listed here, please contact us and we will discuss your options for ABA therapy services!
Our perspective and service are driven by the needs of the child. We offer a child and family-focused approach to ABA therapy, and will always communicate the ABA services we feel are in the client 's best interest. Services can range from 6 months to lifelong, depending on the changing needs of the child.
Recent research shows that the earlier ABA services begin, the greater the outcome for the client. Services can start as young as 18 months, with programming evolving as the child develops. If you have questions about your specific situation in regards to starting ABA therapy services, please contact us!
