Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis is a program for children with autism. It is based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA therapy leads to better behaviors from the child. It reduces behaviors that may be harmful or interfere with learning.

EOCCO covers ABA therapy.

Members must have a referral from a qualified doctor for ABA services. The referral must say that ABA is needed to treat the Member’s autism symptoms.

To learn more, individuals can contact their local community mental health program.

  • Psychiatric Residential Treatment Services (PRTS), or
  • Commercially Sexually Exploited Children’s (CSEC) residential program

How do I get accepted?

Each county has their own referral packet. However, any youth, family, provider or community member can fill out a referral packet (click on your county’s link below for a referral packet).

When your referral packet is completed and submitted to the county, someone from the program will contact you to orient you to the Wraparound Review Committee. If you make a referral, it is expected that you will present to the review committee.

The committee will review your referral and decide if it is approved based on program criteria and available space.
