The MARC -Miles Autism Research Center
At The MARC- we offer ABA therapy in a variety of settings
 
 
     1:1 -We offer specially designed ABA therapy based on the intake and ongoing assessments    Your child will receive services from highly trained practitioners.  All of our ABA therapy is overseen by a BCBA. The benefit of the clinic setting is that there is a BCBA available throughout many of your child's sessions.
 
 
OT Clinic-Twice a month we have an OT clinic. Our in house OT comes to see each client and help set targets to be used in the ABA setting, train staff at The MARC and give feedback to families for homework and new targets.  The OT will target oral motor needs,  vestibular, fine motor needs, seating adjustments, and sensory needs.  We target the behaviors that are impeding your child's progress socially, behaviorally and academically.                                                                     
 
 
Groups-We offer social groups.  These groups are specifically structured for each child.  We strive to have a balance of typical peers in each group.  These groups focus on things such as staying with the group, receiving instruction in a group, sharing, turn taking, conversation, showing an interest in others, and many other topics.
 
Feeding-We specialize in food and feeding issues.  We offer feeding groups as well as 1:1 treatment.  We target deficits in the food repertoire including touching new food, eating new foods, tolerating different textures, tolerating foods in different settings, adjusting the quantity of food consumed in a setting. Each food/feeding plan is based on current effective ABA practice paired with current effective practice from the Occupational Therapy field.
 
"How much therapy should my child have?" We get this question a lot.  The answer isn't simple but here is the way I address it.  With young children you are coming to us because of a diagnosis or concerns of an impending diagnosis.  This a tough time for you, as a parent, to think about all that your child may need.  That diagnosis means that your child was not meeting targets.  Depending on what those missed targets are will determine the answer to the question.  At the young age there is nothing wrong with as many services as is physically and financially possible.  At The MARC we will ensure that each minute of service is what your child needs, be it group, 1:1, OT, feeding, or whatever it be. 
If you have insurance coverage for ABA services then they will dictate how many hours you can receive.
 
 
"What ages do you work with?"At The MARC we work with all ages 2-13.  The needs for therapy change as the child grows and develops and our staff has experience with all ages. 
 
"Do you offer services in the home or community?" We try to offer services where the needs are for the child.  Most times this can happen in the clinic setting in a 1:1 or group setting.  There are times where a problem presents itself only in a certain setting and so we do everything we can to address the issue in the most appropriate place.  
 
"Do you take insurance?" Currently we take Tricare, Microsoft Premera, CIgna, Aetna.  We are actively trying to get signed up with other insurance companies so if you don't see your insurance carrier here feel free to ask and we will check to see where we stand.
