ABA Therapy Intake

Andy's ABA therapy intake was completed today. It included interviews and questionnaires with me about his behaviors. Now an observation time has to be set up with Andy. Then a treatment plan can be written up to hire and train staff for him.

After the staff are trained, they will call us to set up a time for Andy to start coming in for therapy. This will take several weeks, but I'm glad I got the ball rolling in the right direction. Andy has benefited from ABA therapy in the past, and will now return to it with a new insurance policy.

His past employer-based insurance did not fall under Michigan's Autism mandate voted in to require insurance companies to pay for Autism services. His new individual policy purchased just for him falls under the Autism mandate, and services have been approved. The center just has to create a spot for him now, and he can get back to it.
