Frequently Asked Questions in Yonkers

Therapy sessions could take place in your home, community, or center 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.

We do not currently have a center in the Yonkers area, but please check back for any updates.
