Qualifications of Direct Therapists
All therapists providing direct services to children are trained extensively and supervised by BCBAs. Every therapist who administers direct services to children is required to have at least a bachelor’s degree in special education, elementary education, psychology, or another related human service field. At the bachelor’s level, the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) credential is especially desired.
Payment for Services
Payment for therapy provided in the clinic is arranged through private insurance. Importantly, Indiana law mandates that any health insurance issued on a group basis or as an individual policy must include insurance coverage for individuals with pervasive developmental disorders (including children diagnosed with autism). Our billing specialist will work with families to help them navigate through the insurance maze, which can often be quite confusing.

How to Access Services
To access the services that Hillcroft ABA Clinic offers, simply call the clinic for the intake interview. Once the intake interview is completed, an initial conference will be scheduled at the clinic to (a) discuss the specific needs of the child and (b) provide assistance with insurance coverage as may be required. If needed, an initial evaluation will be scheduled with our clinic psychologist to determine eligibility for services. A tour of the clinic will also be given at this time. Once eligibility has been determined and insurance authorization is received, a start date will be set and therapy will begin.
