Who provides services?

The core Behavior Services Team:

  • Sara White, PhD, BCBA-D, Child Psychologist and Behavior Analyst
  • ABA Behavior Specialists and Technicians

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.

What kinds of services are offered?

A behavior therapy called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the form of behavior therapy offered through the center.  ABA is a scientifically validated and evidence based therapy that involves in-home sessions in which the child is taught socially relevant skills to cope with problem behaviors and parents are trained to implement behavior modification principles in the home.  Inappropriate behaviors are targeted for reduction and are replaced with socially appropriate behaviors.

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 distress in the home or at school.

We match the needs of the child and family to what the scientific literature suggests is the most appropriate intervention.

What intensity of treatment can you offer my child?

The intensity of treatment varies from child to child and is based upon the family’s needs, preference for intensity, and financial ability.

We are able to offer a wide spectrum of treatment options. The following are all examples of services we provide:

  •   Development of a behavior plan plus one or two follow-up visits to modify the plan as needed. Parents and teachers (or other providers) implement the plan.
  •   Development of a behavior plan plus 1-2 hours per week with the child and parents and / or teachers to train parents / teachers in implementing the plan.
  •   Intensive one-on-one treatment in home or school (5-10 hours per week).
  •   Very intensive one-on-one treatment (25-40 hours per week).
  •   Weekly in-office sessions with the child therapist.

How will I know how much treatment planning or treatment will cost?

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.

Does Sendan Center bill insurance companies for ABA treatment services?

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.

If you are not sure whether Sendan Center would be able to bill your insurance for ABA, please call our Billing department at 360-305-3275, ext. 3.
