Frequently asked questions

Does my child need a diagnosis to receive services?


No! Any child experiencing developmental delays or behavioral challenges may receive services. Although we specialize in working with children with autism we also have extensive experience working with common childhood behavioral challenges, global developmental delays, sensory processing disorder, intellectual disability, ADHD, anxiety disorders, and apraxia.




How many hours per week will my child need?


The exact number of hours per week depends on your child's needs and family's priorities. After a functional behavioral assessment (FBA), we will discuss the recommended hours per week for your child. The standard recommendation is usually 25 hours per week although updated American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines now suggest greater flexibility and individualization. Furthermore, recent research findings indicate that lower intensity interventions can lead to improvements in social communications and other core challenges of autism.




What COVID safety measures do you have in place?


Your child's health and safety is one of our top priorities. We have digital check-ins to minimize people in the reception area, perform temperature checks upon arrival, all staff and parents are required to wear masks, and we space out appointments to allow for extra time to sanitize the rooms and toys between every session.




Do you accept insurance?


No, at this time we are not contracted with insurance. All services are private pay. You will be provided with a super bill and may submit it to your insurance for reimbursement, which will vary depending on your out-of-network benefits. Please note that although we do not require a diagnosis to receive our services most insurances DO require an autism diagnosis for behavioral services to be covered.




What are your fees?


We offer intervention packages depending on the service and recommended number of hours per week. Please contact us at hello@herreraBCBA.com for further information.
