Social Skills Program
Achievement in the domain of social interaction greatly improves the quality of life for a learner and we place a premium on screening, assessment, and individually tailored interventions.

I already have an ABA provider. Can I only enroll in Social Skills Groups with Autism Learning Partners?
It is possible, but you will need to contact your insurance plan. Many funding sources/insurance providers do not approve more than one authorization for treatment in this area. Please check with your specific provider for their rules and guidelines.
In order for a child to make progress, family participation is a vital component. Your Clinical team will recommend a level of participation they determine is necessary. We encourage parents to sit in on sessions as often as they can. You are not required to participate in all ABA sessions, however, a caregiver over the age of 18 must be onsite at the home at all times. For clinic-based appointments, the child may be dropped off.
No. Your Behavior Technician can accompany your family for a clinically recommended trip. BTs are prohibited from driving the child, however, even if a parent or guardian is present in the car.

" ABA was imperative [to our three boys'] success and the knowledge, time, instruction, and passion that was put into our family from Autism Learning Partners has carried over into all aspects of their life. "
" I liked that Autism Learning Partners had structure and order on how they approached therapy and goals. I value the time they took in getting to know my son on a personal level so that ABA treatment was tailored for my son. "
