ABA training & treatment programs for children with autism and other special needs now available throughout St. Louis and surrounding areas
ST. LOUIS, MO (January 1, 2018) Behavior Frontiers, a non public agency offering solutions to help children with autism and other special needs using state-of-the-art applied behavior analysis (ABA) treatment programs, is announcing the expansion of services to the St. Louis area in Missouri.
Families will be provided with custom ABA treatment plans delivered by Behavior Frontiers’ knowledgeable and highly trained clinical staff members using accurate and results-driven ABA methods to improve the quality of life for children and their families. Behavior Frontiers behavior technicians are expertly trained on an on-going basis, and continually supervised by our licensed BCBAs.
Missouri law (HB1311 & 1341) requires private insurance companies operating in Missouri to provide coverage under group health insurance policies for psychiatric care, psychological care, rehabilitative care (including ABA [applied behavior analysis] therapy), therapeutic and pharmacy care to children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The law also establishes licensure requirements for behavior analysts who supervise ABA treatment for children with ASD. Behavior Frontiers is currently contracted with ComPsych in order to provide this medically necessary treatment to children with autism spectrum disorder and continues contract with additional insurance companies as needed. Behavior Frontiers offers free insurance verification to help families get started with a comprehensive treatment plan as quickly as possible.
“The CDC now estimates that an average of 1 in 59 children in the U.S have an autism spectrum disorder,” says Behavior Frontiers Founder and Executive Director, Helen Mader, M.A., B.C.B.A., “so our goal is to expand to new areas and offer the highest quality ABA treatment to children in need of these medically necessary services.”
