FAQ’s

What services do you offer?

RCG Behavioral Health Network offers ABA Therapy in the home and our Development Center.

Collaboration with family members and other therapy providers helps us to promote positive gains that be generalized across your child’s typical environments.

Who is eligible to receive services?

We provide service to any individual that have a diagnosed condition that will likely cause a developmental delay, and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Do all of the kids you work with have Autism?

No, we work with toddlers and pre-school aged children that have a diagnosed condition that will likely cause a developmental delay.

Do you work with adults that have Autism?

Yes, we work with adults or individuals that are transitioning to adulthood that need individualized training to improve functional skills, social awareness, maintaining appropriate behaviors, conducting activities of daily living, nutrition management, and the monitoring of the individual’s behavioral health and physical health.

How important is Early Intervention when dealing with Autism?

Early intensive behavioral intervention has been shown to produce marked changes in the skill deficits and problem behavior associated with Autism. Cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 2/3 with early diagnosis and intervention.

Is there a waiting list for services?

No. We are currently accepting new clients.

How long should I expect my child to receive services?

This depends on the child and where they are with development. Ultimately, the goal is for families to be confident in their child’s development without intervention. For that reason, we include training and teaching parents strategies to use with your child. The more parental involvement the more likely your child is to succeed.

How many hours of service will my child receive?

The number of hours of service a child receives weekly will depend on the needs of that child. For most kids, this involves 10-20 hours of direct services a week.

Do I need to participate in my child services?

Yes, the more you are involved, the more gains your child will make. In order for there to be lasting change when our services end, parent’s involvement is critical. We encourage family members to ask questions, observe sessions, participate in trainings, take data on your child and follow through with therapeutic strategies and behavior plans.

How are long are the therapy sessions?

A therapy session typically lasts for 3 hours.

Do you accept insurance?

We do accept most major insurance plans. Please contact us to confirm about your specific plan. If we do not accept your plan, we will be happy to help you get reimbursed. We will provide you with the procedure codes and a receipt which you can file with your insurance company directly and get reimbursed.

Can a family pay out of pocket for service?

Yes, however, there are other funding sources that may prove to be better solutions for families. Part C funding is an option for infants and toddlers 0-3 and private insurance for children diagnosed with Autism. Please contact our office for help and guidance with maximizing your funding options.

Do you accept Medicaid?
