recentAutism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental 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 includes the disorders previously known as Autistic Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome and Pervasive Development Disorder NOS (Not Otherwise Specified), which are no longer used as separate diagnostic categories.

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.

Our staff psychologist, Dr. Mariel Cannady provides diagnostic autism assessments for children age 2-10 years old. Dr.  Cannady also provides Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for children with a developmental age of 8-14 years old and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for young children with challenging behaviors.
