We’re a team of experienced professionals dedicated to your child’s success.
ABA is evidenced-based therapy that has two primary areas of focus: Skill Building and Behavior Support. We take socially significant skills and break them down into smaller components that we teach until mastery and then continue to build upon them. These skills are taught through play and incorporate your child’s interests. Strengths are expanded upon and deficits or areas of need are addressed to provide your child with the skills needed to be successful in their environment.
During your child’s initial intake, the MAC clinical team will meet with you and your child to identify areas of strength, concerns, and goals for your child. Following this assessment, the clinical team, in collaboration with the recommendation made from your child’s prescribing physician, will recommend the number of hours of ABA therapy per week. Typically, a range of 15-35 hours per week is recommended based on the number and type of treatment goals addressed in therapy.

The MAC Clinical team will work with you to develop a transition plan for your child. Based on progress and goals of treatment, this may include a systematic transition plan from the day program to after school program or a transition to a different service provider.
We do not currently have an OT/ST/PT therapist on staff. We will collaborate with your current therapist to incorporate goals into your child’s treatment plan.
We currently collaborate with Dr. Michael Kelley to do evaluations. He is partnered through PAK pediatrics. We would be happy to set that appointment up for you.

We will need a copy of your child’s initial ASD diagnostic report, copy of insurance card(s), and subscriber form (if applicable). We will also provide you with a written order to be completed with your doctor and with consents to obtain information forms for your child’s primary care physician and diagnosing doctor.
Before starting services, we will complete a verification of benefits with your insurance provider. Our clinic coordinators will then set up a call to go over any out-of-pocket costs with you.
