A diagnosis is required by insurances to begin ABA services in Florida. Outside of Florida Medicaid, many insurances require that diagnosis to be on the Autism Spectrum.
Private pay families can be referred for service without an official diagnosis.
A referral signed by a MD is required for all children being funded by an insurance plan.
Private Pay families do not need a referral and can skip ahead to the next step.
Once you’ve received your referral for services, contact us to schedule your child’s initial assessment.

Once assessment has been completed, your child’s recommended hours and scheduling will be finalized.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will verify your health benefits prior to your arrival to determine if there will be a copay, deductible, or coinsurance for therapy services.
