Connect Plus Therapy

Our Mission

Connect Plus Therapy is  “therapy with heart” We provide high quality ABA services focusing on the overall quality of life for our clients and their family. 

Connect Plus Therapy values the relationship with our families to develop a naturalistic approach with the goal to support individual needs.  It is our mission to help clients reach their greatest potential using evidence based and developmentally appropriate practices to promote a difference in our community and the world through ABA therapy.

 

General Questions

Individuals with a diagnosis of ASD with a participating health insurance plan.  If you do not know whether your child’s plan includes ABA, our insurance team can check your eligibility. 

We also offer private pay options for families with children who do not have an ASD diagnosis.

Home or community-based ABA services include assessment by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), individualized planning, and daily treatment by a Behavior Technician. Our clients are typically approved for 12-30 hours of therapy weekly as well as planning and oversight by a BCBA.  Our therapists acknowledge families as central to any successful intervention and understand that nobody knows your child as well as you.

While many children receive only ABA services, services offered by Connect Plus can also be supplemental to whatever existing services and supports your child is currently receiving.  Our team members work closely with special educators and other related service providers, such as speech therapists and occupational therapists.  We work both in and out of schools, and can provide services in the afternoons, evenings, and weekends to meet your child’s needs

ABA Therapy comes in many forms.  While many people think that ABA is simply about reducing unwanted behaviors, it is actually the way we teach and support children acquiring new adaptive behaviors as well. Typically the services are provided in your home.  Just like every person with Autism is different, every person’s treatment plan will be different. Do you see your child doing very structured activities at a table top to learn school readiness skills? Do you have a picture in your mind of your child on the floor of the playroom with all their favorite toys, starting to use language to share their wants and needs? Or do you see your teenager who has struggled to make friends join into a group of welcoming teens to talk about the latest version of a popular video game? All of these visions could be supported by the use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Sometimes programming may consist of you and a Behavior Analyst sitting and talking about your worries and dreams for your child, and designing together the steps towards reaching those goals. Other times, a Behavior Technician will be demonstrating techniques to set limits and help teach the boundaries needed for a child to be included in the community and be safe. Therapy can happen in all places … we refer to them as environments. Therapy happens at the dinner table, in the tub, at the local library and in even in your place of worship. ABA is the technology through which we learn and support everyday skills needed to have a full and meaningful life.

Connect Plus strives to work with the family using person centered approaches to decide how services with be delivered. What does “person centered” really mean? It means that programming takes into consideration the person receiving therapy and their motivations. What does the person and their family see for their future? What supports are needed to achieve the vision?

So many questions. Please reach out to Connect Plus to help you find the answers.  Please contact Jodie@connectplustherapy.com or 856-827-7634 to guide you through the Eligibility and Intake process.

We look forward to the opportunity to support not only your child, but your whole family as well.
