ABA providers in Nothern Virginia

Hello. My 2 y o son has been diagnosed with autism. I wonder if anyone can recommend a good ABA provider in Nothern VIrginia who accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance.
Also, I wonder the cost work with co-pay. We have a plan with co-pay $25 per visit. I wonder if that means that we just will pay $25 for each day of therapy (no matter how many hours) or we need to pay also for indirect hours.
I would really appreciate any information on the subject.

Has anyone experienced selective mutism with their child?

My son is in prek3, He's very smart but doesn't talk at all at school. It seems like he freezes up. When he comes home he talkes non stop. I've done a little research on my own, and it seems like he has selective mutism. Has anyone else experienced this with their child?
