We're Here to Help
At Thrive Behavior Centers, we're here to make getting the therapy your child needs as quick and easy as possible.
For your child's initial consultation, our team will schedule a complimentary consultation with our Chief Clinical Officer, Anna Bentley, M.Ed, BCBA, LBA. Anna can answer questions about ABA therapy, our specialized treatment model, and why personalized ABA therapy is so important. This is also a great time to ask questions about our ABA services and centers to ensure we’re the best fit for your family.
Next, you'll bring your child to one of our bright, kid-friendly centers for a clinical evaluation with one of our knowledgeable and compassionate BCBAs. During the evaluation, the BCBA will meet with you to discuss your concerns and then get some one-one-one time with your child for a play-based evaluation using a behavioral assessment (VB-MAPP, ABLLS-R, PEAK, etc.).
After the evaluation, the BCBA will meet with you briefly to discuss his or her recommendations for ABA therapy and then follow up by sending your child's personalized ABA treatment plan.
We'll also take care submitting all the appropriate documentation to your insurance for authorization of services.
We know waiting is difficult when you are trying to get help for your child. We help streamline the process to make it as quick and easy as possible. Our centers are accepting new clients, which reduces wait time and helps get your child's therapy started faster.
Most insurance companies review the BCBA's treatment plan before authorizing coverage for ABA therapy. We'll submit all the necessary documentation and keep you updated on the review process. We're committed to starting your child's therapy as soon as possible.
We're looking forward to meeting your child!
