      Autism Services in New Jersey

      These are the technical names for the services we offer. Above all, we want you to know we use proven, scientific therapies that are customized to your child and your family. Note that services may differ by region and clinician. If you are wondering what services are right for your child, please contact us.

      Home-based ABA services allow teaching to occur in the child’s natural environment and incorporates learning within the child’s natural routine

      Research indicates that early, high intensity intervention, often birth to five years old may have the best outcomes for improving your child’s development.

      It has been proven that parents who are actively involved in their child’s therapy often see more progress in their children. Our clinical team is trained to build success for the entire family unit.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Do you diagnose?

      Yes. We have a licensed psychologist onsite that can diagnose children under 5 in Indianapolis.
      For children over 5, we have established community partnerships that can assist. For a list of our community partnerships, please contact our intake department at 855-295-3276 Ext. 276.

      Do you have qualified staff?

      Yes. Each ALP region employs BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) and master’s level Supervisors who oversee all clinical operations. Additionally, our Behavior Technicians who carry out the daily treatment programs receive a comprehensive training program along with regular supervision, support and ongoing training by our senior clinical staff.

      Can I meet the staff (my Behavior Technician) before my child’s treatment begins?

      Yes. Your designated clinical supervisor will review our Client Partnership Agreement with you in person and introduce you to our treatment approach. You will have the opportunity to meet the rest of your team as they work with you and become familiar with your child.

      Do you require a minimum number of hours?

      Yes. We require parents to commit to what is medically necessary for their child to make progress. Your BCBA will prescribe a level of service (number of weekly hours) based on your child’s individual needs that will most likely lead to the best opportunity for behavioral improvements.

      Do you provide school-based services?

      Yes. If it is considered medically necessary and is a service recommended by your ALP clinical staff, we can. Additionally, your insurance company must approve it and your school must approve ALP staff can be on school premises with your child.

      Do you provide services on weekends?

      Yes. We regularly provide sessions on weekends. ABA is a daily treatment program and we offer some of those hours on weekends. Before treatment begins, our client services team will inform you about the options that are available and finalize your schedule with you.

      Do you provide a blended treatment option (e.g. half in home / half in a clinic)?

      Yes. We offer a flexible service location offering for our families and will collaborate with your family and what is best for your child.

      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 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.

      Do I have to be present while my child is receiving services?

      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 at home for the duration of each session. For clinic-based appointments, the child may be dropped off.

      Can my BT drive my child around, if needed?

      No. Your Behavior Technician can accompany your family for a clinically recommended trip in a family vehicle. BTs are prohibited from driving the child in any vehicle, even if a parent or guardian is present in the car.
