The Intake Process

Getting started can be a lot of work

But it doesn't have to be a mystery

After the office has contacted you to start the intake process, here's what you can expect:

First things first, initial TRICARE approval

Make sure that required Tricare referrals and service authorizations have been completed (referral for services, Green Box ABA indicated as provider). If uncertain of status, contact Tricare/Humana  Military or your Tricare Case Manager.

Intake Paperwork

The office will send you intake paperwork to complete. We need this paperwork in order to gain a better understanding of your clinical needs, as well as to have required information on file for current and future use.

Initial Consult

The office will work with you to set up the initial consultation.  At this meeting, you will meet your Behavior Analyst, who will ask you about your child's clinical needs and have a conversation about how those needs will be met.


The office will work with you to set up the initial assessment. During this appointment, a Behavior Analyst will interact with your child to learn more about your child’s strengths and needs, which may also include administration of a formal assessment tool, such as a Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP), Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS), or Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS). 

Treatment Plan

After the assessment, an Assessment Report and Proposed Treatment Plan will be prepared. A draft of this report/plan will be shared with you for your comments, questions, and potential modifications. After we have answered all your questions and your have signed the report, it will be submitted to TRICARE.

Finalize Schedule

While waiting for approval from TRICARE, you will be contacted to begin the process of scheduling your regular weekly sessions.

Therapy Begins!

Therapy sessions will begin! The Behavior Analyst will make sure that everything gets off to a great start
