Steps to Making a Change

Getting into treatment is likely a new experience. We’ll be with you through every step of the process!

Step 1: Call to Schedule a Free Consultation

Many families are referred to IBAA by a pediatrician, educator, friend, or other professional and have limited knowledge related to autism or ABA treatment. Let us provide you with the information necessary to determine if ABA services could benefit your child.

Call us at 765-419-0411 or send a message to schedule a free consultation with our clinical team. You’ll meet with a senior staff member to discuss specific questions about autism, your child’s behavior, applied behavior analysis, our program, etc. We encourage you to ask difficult questions, making sure to become familiar with us and confident that your child will greatly benefit from our program.

Step 2: Schedule a Diagnostic Test

Currently, many funding sources require a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) before authorizing or covering ABA treatment. If you believe that your child or loved one is demonstrating signs and symptoms of autism, speak with your pediatrician to determine if diagnostic services are necessary. Note: The waitlist for diagnostic testing can be lengthy. If it exceeds 3 months, IBAA will provide alternative testing locations for you.

Step 3: Identify Available Funding

Once a child has a diagnosis ASD, IBAA works with insurance companies to begin the authorization process for ABA therapy. Our team works directly with insurance providers to verify benefits and ensure a rapid enrollment process. For those who do not have insurance, our team will identify all options and assist you in securing funding for your child’s treatment. Once insurance authorization is received, a start date is determined. We will assist you in preparing your child, family, and/or home environment for therapy by the scheduled start date.

Step 4: ABA Therapy Begins

In ABA therapy, your child will receive individualized treatment from a team of three to five therapists, a group leader, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to several years and is usually 20 to 40 hours per week. IBAA is proud to offer a skilled team of professionals whose advanced knowledge and experience in ABA therapy elevates the quality of support offered to the learners and families enrolled in our program.
