Steps To Starting ABA Therapy


Obtain Diagnosis

Most insurances require an autism diagnosis. Some insurances will accept other diagnoses. We are happy to check with your insurance benefits for you.


Contact Us

Fill out the online screening form (see below).


Verify Coverage

Our team can work directly with your child's insurance to verify coverage of ABA therapy. 


Meet & Greet

Come take a tour of our center, meet our team, and learn about our program to make sure we are a good fit for your child and family.



Schedule an intake interview and a direct skills assessment with one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts.



Following the assessment, we will create a report and an individualized plan for parents to review and provide input. This plan will be submitted to insurance for approval.


Begin Services

Once your child's insurance approves the treatment plan and recommended hours, your child is ready to begin receiving ABA therapy.

If your insurance is not listed, please contact us and we will inquire with your insurance company to see if ABA services can be covered.

Do you have BCBS-MI insurance?

The autism diagnosis must be obtained at an Approved Autism Evaluation Center (AAEC). The only AAEC located in the UP is in Marquette. Request for your pediatrician to send a referral to this location and you will receive a packet in the mail to fill out. Once, they receive the packet back, you will be called to schedule an appointment.
