COVID-19 Updates

April 5, 2020

The health and well-being of our clients and staff has always been a top priority to us, and that’s never been more important than now. As the COVID-19 health crisis continues to impact us all, we’ll continue to rely on local and national experts, the families we serve and our staff to help us navigate through these difficult times, which we know has been especially tough for many living with autism and other disabilities.

At ABA Connect, we take our designation as a medically necessary mental health provider very seriously. For that reason, we remain committed to providing the essential services our clients have come to depend on, while adjusting our learning environments to minimize personal interactions and maximize cleanliness.

In order to accomplish this, we’ve put extensive safety measures in place. Most significantly, we’ve temporarily moved to a model of care that emphasizes home-based therapy with a reduced care team. Our BCBAs are now utilizing telehealth solutions for the delivery of specific services, such as parent training and client supervision. Our clinics do remain open, but only on a very limited case-by-case basis. At present, most of our clients are now receiving services in a home-based setting with a single therapist assigned to their case.

New Client Requests

While the logistics of adding new clients currently presents many barriers, we will consider new requests on a limited case-by-case basis throughout the crisis. We know that many parents are concerned about the significant progress their child may lose during an extended break from service, and we’ll do our best to assist you during this time if your service provider is no longer available.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly at 512-898-9044.
