A typical ABA program consists of a prescribed number of:

  • Direct-line therapy hours per week
  • Supervision hours per month
  • Consultation sessions per year

Depending on the clinical recommendation of one of our consultants (post-screening), a cost document will be sent to families based on the consultant’s assessment of your child’s learning needs. The recommendations will be individualised, hence the costs will also be individualised.

Typically, we recommend families to commit to an ABA program for at least 2 to 3 years, although progress is noted within the first few weeks of intervention.

This depends on availability of staff. If a team of therapists and a supervisor are available, then regular intervention can occur as soon as an initial training workshop is arranged. If staff are not available, then you would be informed of a potential start date and asked if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

We do provide services after school depending on the intervention needs of your child. We do not provide services on weekends.

No, we do not require a diagnosis to commence services, although it is important to highlight that the vast majority of the individuals who receive intervention from us have a diagnosis of ASD – i.e. we do not typically provide intervention for individuals with other diagnoses.

Some families are able to access funding via independent charities, whilst others have been successful obtaining funding through their local authority. The vast majority of the families who access our services, however, self-fund.

Yes, we provide consultation services both within the UK and overseas.
