1. Do you have a waiting list?

  • We currently have a short waiting list for children who are earlier than school age and in need of intensive 1:1 services 30-40 hours per week. We also have a waiting list for children who are in school and in need of less intensive hours approximately 12-30 hours per week. In order to get to get onto the waiting list, or to be seen for an evaluation to begin services if we have an opening, we need a few things first. We will need a copy of your child's diagnostic evaluation, IEP (with evaluation), copy of your insurance card (Medicaid), and a prescription for ABA from your child's pediatrician or any other doctor. (NOTE: the prescription for ABA can be from a Pediatrician but the diagnosis cannot.)

2. What ages do you accept/work with?

  • We accept new clients aged 18 months to age 18. 

3. Can I schedule an appointment? 

  • In order to schedule an appointment, we first need some information. Please contact us by phone or e-mail to discuss further. 

4. What is ABA Therapy?, What do you do?, What type of therapy do you provide?  

  • ​​ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy. It is a type of therapy that focuses on behavior and how we can change it to make it more appropriate. We focus on any type of problematic behavior, social skills, school readiness, transitioning, academic skills, early learner skills, instruction following, gross motor and fine motor, language and communication, and any other milestones and skills that they wold be achieving at their age. Kids receive any where from about 12-40 hours a week of one on one therapy. They are one on one at all times with staff while they are here unless their goal specifies otherwise. We take constant data on their behavior and track their progress so that we can prove definitively that we are being effective. We do individual parent training, and also do group parent training once a month and present a slideshow on topics related to ABA to expand the knowledge of families outside of therapy. 

5. Can you diagnose my child with Autism? 

  • No, at this time we are not able to diagnose. Once children have a diagnosis we work with kids providing therapy to meet their specific needs. 
  • In order to get a diagnosis in Lake Charles, there are a few places that accept Medicaid: Disney & Associates--337.431.7194, Advanced Health Services--337.477.7091, or Rehabilitation Services of Southwest Louisiana--337.433.3292.
