About TLC & Our Programs
Not necessarily. While most insurance companies require an autism diagnosis to cover ABA services, TLC has other programs that have more flexibility in what populations we serve. While a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is not absolutely necessary to get some services through TLC, ASD and similar diagnoses are the most common populations served.
TLC and its programs can collectively provide services for children from time of diagnosis all the way through the child’s 19th birthday. Adult service options are available on a case-by-case basis. To find out which services best suit your child and family, contact
TLC’s programs are written by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA’s). All of the direct-care therapists receive training which meets the requirements for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s (BACB) Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Credential. Training includes at least 40 hours of ABA training and ethics training. In addition, all staff have passed a criminal background check, are certified in CPR/First Aid and in the Prevention and Management of Aggressive Behaviors (PMAB) annually.
