Getting Started at Cortica

Consider these important factors when deciding whether Cortica is right for your family: condition, care, coverage, and commitment.

Is Cortica Right for Your Family?

Here you don’t have to fight to have providers understand. That takes away the stress. We can go forward with one mindset.

CONDITION

Autism Diagnosis (or Other Related Neurological Condition)

Has your infant, child, teen, or young adult been diagnosed with autism, potential autism, or developmental delay, cerebral palsy, apraxia, sensory processing disorder, ADHD, or brain injury (including stroke, traumatic brain injury, or perinatal hypoxia)?

Although these are the diagnoses shared by the children we serve, these labels do not define a child's developmental path and potential. What makes Cortica unique is our skill in crafting effective, customized treatment programs based on an in-depth understanding of a child's distinct neurophysiology.

CARE

Seeking Multidisciplinary Care

Are you looking for a multi-modal approach to treatment that includes several therapies working together over time to help your child's development?

Cortica's neurological approach to autism treatment builds neural networks that support social interaction, communication, and sensorimotor function. These connections are best built through therapies in combination, not in isolation.

That's why we've developed the Cortica Care Model, a multi-modal approach to therapy that brings together clinical specialists from a range of disciplines to design and deliver coordinated care.

A customized treatment program at Cortica will employ a variety of tools and techniques that may include:

  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologies (e.g., electroencephalography, genetic/metabolic testing, neurofeedback, non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation, and more)
  • Nutrition Therapy and Supplementation
  • Speech-Language Therapy (both spoken language and written language)
  • Behavior Intervention (Applied Behavior Analysis [ABA] as well as Relationship-Based approaches)
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Parent Education and Training
  • Education and Academic Consultations
  • Family Counseling

Our program is for families seeking a comprehensive, integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to autism, not simply one therapy alone.

The combination of therapies that's right for your child is based on a series of neurological and behavioral assessments conducted by our team. Here's what to expect from your journey with Cortica.

COVERAGE

In Network Insurance Coverage

Is Cortica in-network with your insurance carrier?

The Cortica Care Model implements a layered, lasting approach to autism care that works best if you can commit to building a relationship with Cortica over the course of a year or more. This time commitment can be a burden financially for families who are not covered by insurance, and can be more likely to quit. Cortica is in-network with these PPO plans.

COMMITMENT

Committed to Collaboration and Change

Are you committed to participating in your child's development by attending family sessions, meeting with therapists, learning new approaches, and changing the way you do things at home?

Our approach to child development works best when we all work together for the best outcomes.

Important Note: Our program is for families seeking a comprehensive, integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to autism, not simply one therapy alone. If your family is are looking for short-term solutions, single therapy, or results without participation, Cortica is not likely a good fit for you. Please refer to these other autism resources.
