Ascendigo provides in-home behavioral therapy and school consultations by BCBA’s, OT’s, BCBA-candidates, and Registered Behavior Technicians for children with autism and related conditions. We use Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions, incorporating the principles of the Early Start Denver Model, positive behavior supports, pivotal response training and applied behavioral analysis.
Early intensive ABA therapy, based on the methods used at Ascendigo, can alter the trajectory of the brain and social, language and cognitive development in children with autism. ABA uses scientifically validated techniques to create useful skills and positive behavior change, resulting in better outcomes in most children with autism. Function can be improved when therapy is given at any age, from early childhood through adulthood; however experts say that the earlier intervention begins, the better the outcome. Intensive therapy for children is generally defined as 20 – 40 hours per week and can be delivered in the home, at school or in the community.
Our Outreach professionals are dedicated to helping children with social, communication, behavioral and cognitive challenges grow, learn, and succeed. Our goal is for our clients to fully participate in family, school, and community life and our team works with parents to develop and implement an ABA-based therapeutic plan individualized to the child and the family’s needs.
Our program includes:
Assessment: Our team gets to know your child and your priorities in order to create a treatment plan.
Treatment Plan Development: After assessment and intake, our therapists write the treatment goals and individualized treatment plan.
On-Going Therapy: After building a relationship with your child, trained therapists will implement the plan in 1:1 sessions with the child. During the sessions, we take data in each goal area on progress and other observations.
Progress Monitoring & Adjustments: The data collected during therapy sessions is used by our team to continually assess your child’s progress and modify the therapy accordingly.
Behavioral therapies delivered by qualified professionals are a covered benefit in many health insurance plans for an autism diagnosis. Ascendigo will work with families to help obtain health insurance authorizations and submit invoices for reimbursements for health insurance and waivers.
