If you are ready to take the next step and allow us to provide relief and create possibilities for your family, these are the next steps:

  1. Call us at 810-344-8082 or fill out our online form.
  2. Our Office Manager will answer your questions and gather some basic information from you. We can schedule a tour for you at our Burton or Brighton facility.
  3. You’ll fill out an intake packet, which can be provided electronically or on paper at the tour.
  4. Our Billing Specialist will confirm your insurance plan’s coverage of ABA services, and provide you with the information in writing.
  5. A free screening is provided to ensure that our center is the right fit for your child and family.
  6. Our Board Certified Behavior Analyst will conduct an assessment, and meet with you to discuss the results and your child’s treatment plan.
  7. Once the treatment plan is finalized with your input, and authorized by your insurance, we can begin treatment.


What can we do while we work through those steps?

We know how frustrating it can be to wait for treatment to begin, and we will work as quickly as possible to move from a tour to treatment. While you’re waiting, please investigate these useful resources:

The Autism Alliance of Michigan has a program called MiNavigator, which was created to provide a professional case management service to Michigan families affected by autism. MiNavigator is staffed by a team of autism specialists with expertise in many fields, including clinical, educational, insurance, vocational, public safety, policy, and legal. Their autism specialists work one-on-one with each family to help them navigate and overcome the many barriers they face when trying to access care and support for their loved one affected by autism. Strive Center for Autism recommends that all families connect with this free resource.

If your child has been newly diagnosed, the 100 Day Kit from Autism Speaks is a helpful resource. They provide kits for young children and school aged children.

You also may consider beginning additional therapies, such as speech or Occupational Therapy (OT.) In Brighton, we have partnered with Kids in Motion to provide options for families. When you reach out to Kids in Motion, please let them know that you are working toward beginning treatment with us as well, so that we can collaborate to provide the best fit for your family. In Burton, our Board Certified Behavior Analyst can provide you with the names of local providers if you are interested in pursuing other therapies.
