Our ABA Therapy Services
Our ABA therapy clinic in Waco, TX offers a wide variety of autism services based on the individual needs of you or your child. Our center provides 1:1 treatment for people of all ages, and our treatment plans are designed to achieve individual goals.
Full Time Day Program
Our full-time ABA program helps to increase independence and transition children into a more traditional school environment once their individual goals have been met. We have day programs designed for children as well as adolescents and teenagers.
Part-Time Focused Intervention
Our part-time ABA program focuses on a smaller or limited set of skills that your child may need to develop, or a behavior that requires more specific treatment. This focused intervention is suitable for all ages and is best for those who require treatment for a minimal number of functional skills. Focused intervention may be recommended when a child has met a defined set of their goals and is fading out of comprehensive ABA services.
One of our specialty areas within ABA is our feeding therapy. In conjunction with the child’s other healthcare providers, we work to target mealtime skills such as picky eating, restaurant skills, and more. We work with parents on integrating feeding techniques to create a more productive mealtime experience.
Directed by a board certified behavioral analyst (BCBA), our engaging toilet training sessions provide parents the tools to empower their child to use the bathroom on their own. An autism diagnosis is not required for this program.
Our online ABA therapy services are a great alternative to those who can’t attend sessions at our Waco, TX center. A certified BCBA will provide ABA therapy guidance and support from the comfort of your home through video conferencing.
A professional autism evaluation is required for a majority of our programs because we believe early intervention is important for treatment success. Empower Behavioral Health provides autism evaluation in-person at our Waco, TX ABA clinic. Our licensed psychologist is able to properly diagnose autism for individuals of all ages.
Our autism evaluation services include:
- Autism evaluations
- Neurodevelopmental evaluations
- Mental health evaluations
- Trauma evaluations
Will Insurance Cover ABA Therapy?
