Autism Learning Partners is proud to partner with Georgia Medicaid to serve families in Georgia. We are contracted to work with all four Care Management Organizations. Whether your family is assigned to Amerigroup Community Care, CareSource, Peach State Health Plan, or WellCare we’re here to help! Our Intake team can walk you through the requirements to access ABA per your specific health plan assignment, but all will require an autism diagnosis made by an MD or Psychologist. An autism diagnosis will typically include a standardized assessment, such as ADOS (Autism Diagnosis Observation Schedule), ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised), CARS (Childhood Autism Rating Scale), or GARS (Gilliam Autism Rating Scale). You may check your child’s autism diagnosis for the inclusion of one of these assessments but, if you’re unsure, please feel free to contact our experienced Intake team, who will advise.

Early Intervention

Because the early years of a child’s life are critical in brain development, it is vital for parents and providers to understand the available evidence-based practices, such as Applied Behavior Analysis, and the appropriate service options and treatment settings available. At Autism Learning Partners, we offer a developmental early intervention half- and full-day program. We use an in-house curriculum that is informed by best practices across the industry to meet your child’s needs.

Beginning a Path of Progress

Research indicates that early, high intensity intervention, often birth to five years old may have the best outcomes for improving your child’s development. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the only therapy approved by the U.S. Surgeon General in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders.

Early Intervention program for children

Learning Opportunities to Promote Active Engagement and Social Speech

We provide an enriched environment for children benefiting from a systematic approach to gaining skills (e.g. attending, following group instructions, observing). We nurture self-expression, encourage exploration to promote spontaneous speech, create social opportunities with peers of similar age, and prepare your child for group-learning environments.

We use natural environment training, which uses a child’s preferred activities to teach foundational skills. For young children, this is play. Our clinical staff are trained to follow your child’s lead while they play with items and objects and use these as opportunities to teach important skills.

Tracking Milestones

When your child receives early intervention services at Autism Learning Partners, a dedicated trained clinical team is assigned to your child. Your team reviews developmental milestones and tracks the progress of learning new skills. When a deficiency is detected early by our behavior professional, there is an improved likelihood of reducing this deficiency with dedicated support. With caregiver collaboration, we discuss your child’s development and progress on goals during regularly scheduled meetings.

There are parent organizations and resources within the Atlanta area that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please contact us for more information.

Therapy sessions could take place in your home or community environment, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends, and if the school and insurance provides approval.

Yes, if it is considered medically necessary by the ALP Clinical team, the school district allows, and the insurance provider approves. We will collaborate with the education team to build a comprehensive plan for your child.

The medical diagnosis must come from a diagnostic provider, such as a Primary Care Physician or Psychologist. Unfortunately, an IEP will not suffice on its own. A diagnostic evaluation, like the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), would need to be completed.

Therapy sessions might take place in your home or community, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends. Each session, a Behavior Technician will work one-on-one with your child, targeting individualized goals embedded into fun and functional activities. Sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on your child’s needs. Parent training is always a part of the treatment plan, as we want you to have that support.
