The core Behavior Services Team:
Other Sendan Center service providers are also available to Behavioral Services families. These include clinicians in the areas of child psychiatry, speech / language / communications, childhood anxiety, and learning disorder diagnosis and treatment.
Sendan ABA therapy programs are tailored to each individual client’s needs and skills. We will meet learners where they are and strive to help them achieve their goals in a way that is significant to them and to their families.
ABA therapy is a scientifically validated and evidence-based intervention that can target increasing communication and social skills, acquiring daily living skills and attaining independence in the community, as well as decreasing maladaptive behaviors that can interfere with day-to-day joy, learning and community experiences. We will work with you and your learner to pinpoint those specific goals that will have the greatest impact on their quality of life.
We serve children with autism spectrum disorders, Down Syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders, disruptive behaviors and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, as well as typically developing children with significant behavior issues that are causing them distress in their daily environments.
We match the needs of the child and family to what the scientific literature suggests is the most appropriate intervention. We will use some or all of the following techniques:
The intensity of treatment varies from child to child and is based upon the family’s needs, preference for intensity, and financial ability.
Upon intake, a Behavior Specialist will directly assess a client’s skills and current level of need, as well as gather input from their caregivers and service providers. Using this information, they will then determine the most appropriate setting and intensity of services required for the best outcomes.
We are able to offer a wide spectrum of treatment options. The following are all examples of services we provide:
We will always let you know in advance of any appointments or sessions what the costs are, so you can decide whether or not you want to proceed. Costs are determined by which provider you are seeing, what sort of treatment you are seeking, what your child’s diagnosis is, and what kind of insurance you have. Based on this information, our billing department will let you know what your likely costs are.
If your child has a diagnosis of Autism AND you have Kaiser, Premera, Regence, HCA Fee-for-Service, or Molina: Yes.
In all other circumstances: No. All costs for treatment services are paid for out of pocket by families. Families will be given invoices once a month listing all services rendered along with billing codes and credential information for each provider to be submitted to insurance for possible reimbursement.
