Hi. It looks like behavioral health treatment (particularly ABA method) is mentioned in insurance policies. I wasn't able to figure out whether relatively newer therapies like Floortime or Early Start Denver Model are covered by the insurance or not. Also, there seems to be cases where regional centers cover Floortime or Early Start Denver Model services. Is there anyone who has success with getting finances for one… read more
Has anyone found this effective? Anyone in the greater Boston Area doing this?!
My daughter is 27 months and has just started with our state's Early Intervention program. Because she is very high functioning, they only recommended that she see an developmental interventionist for one hour once a week.

I'm trying to incorporate the early start denver model into our therapy plan. My 2.5 year old daughter is currently getting traditional ABA. I want to incorporate a greeting routine that I read about, but don't know the specifics. She is just learning to imitate words and inconsistently will imitate a wave. Any ideas from parents that implement a greeting routine. The therapist usually comes every morning for 2 hours.

My four year old son, Jacoby, has ADHD and high functioning autism. I am so confused and overwhelmed with the different therapies. I only know a little bit and ABA is the one that keeps popping up. What other therapy options are there and what are the pro cons? I just want to do what's best for him!
We have been at the same ABA place for a year. I am thinking of looking into somewhere else. My daughter has had some improvements but not what I would have thought or expected within a years time. She seems really bored and her behavior lately has been at its worst. I have talked with her supervisor about changing things up but never seems to happen. Can anyone offer advice or tips about how you know that you are at the right place and how your… read more
Do any of you with elementary aged kids have IEP accommodations for recess? Jesse is six and is starting to get in trouble at recess. It is just too much for him - sensory overload. He is active and needs an outlet and recess is important, but not sure of any steps to take. Thanks.
