ABA THERAPY FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM
When you have a child with autism, finding the right therapy can feel overwhelming. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a type of autism spectrum therapy that focuses on improving specific behaviors, including the skills and actions needed to talk, play and live. ABA therapy is a key therapy to improve the quality of life for children with autism.

HOW DO YOU FIND ABA THERAPY SERVICES?
If you’re typing into Google “ABA therapy near me,” the first step is to talk with your pediatrician or other medical provider who knows your child’s medical history. They will know best if ABA therapy is the right option for your child and can refer you to qualified therapists in your area, such as the experienced team at Kadiant. Check whether your insurance company covers the cost of ABA therapy. An ABA therapist can write a prescription for ABA therapy if it is necessary for your insurance provider.
WHO PROVIDES ABA SERVICES?
A qualified and trained Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) provides ABA services at our office in Columbus. Certified ABA therapists design and directly oversee the ABA therapy. The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) is the professional body responsible for certifying behavior analysts. In order to be eligible for the certification examination, individuals must have earned at least a master’s degree in behavior analysis or a related field approved by the BACB, such as education, psychology, or social work.
