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.

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?
