Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a neurodevevelopmental disorder that affects approximately 3.5 million individuals and families in the United States. ASD is characterized by difficulties with communication, social interactions, a restricted range of interests, and repetitive behavioral patterns. ASD now include the disorders previously known as Asperger’s Syndrome and Pervasive Development Disorder NOS (Not Otherwise Specified), which are no longer used as separate labels.
At ABA Connect, our services are generally targeted toward children diagnosed with or at risk for ASD from infancy to adolescence. Please note that insurance is unlikely to reimburse for any ABA services beyond age 8.
Practitioners from our separate but affiliated practice, the Austin Psychology & Assessment Center (ApaCenter), can provide assessment services for children with or at risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder. Additional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and social skills services are available at the ApaCenter for children, teens, and adults with ASD.
