Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for insurance to cover treatment, including ABA?

Does my child need a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for insurance to cover treatment, including ABA?

Yes - in almost all cases, a diagnosis of ASD is required to cover treatment. Unlike other providers, our full-time pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, and nurse practitioners provide a diagnosis in-house, often virtually, during your Telehealth Welcome Visit. There's no need to pursue an Autism diagnosis from another provider.   

Do you have a waitlist?

Do you have a waitlist?

We typically do not have a waitlist for welcome visits, medical visits, developmental therapy evaluations, and ABA assessments. As these evaluations and assessments are complete, we prescribe weekly developmental therapy and ABA sessions as needed. Depending on your availability, we can quickly start these services. We are constantly hiring and training new DT and ABA therapists. We know that progress comes from access to services, and we will contact you any time we have an opening.

Do you only treat Autism?

Do you only treat Autism?

We specialize in Autism care, but we also serve a broad range of neurodiverse patients, including those with developmental delay, ADHD, epilepsy, genetic syndromes, sensory processing disorder, and more. Our team has expertise in diagnosing and treating a wide spectrum of developmental challenges.
