Interest Form

  • Complete the Interest form for the location you are in, a Step-In team member will call with information on availability.

Parent Meeting and Tour

  • As soon as space is available, a parent meeting with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst will be scheduled and you will be given a tour of the clinic. This is a great time to ask questions, see what our services are like and decide if we are the right fit for you and your child.

Functional Assessment and Funding Plan

  • Your BCBA will develop an individualized treatment plan and recommended intensity level.

  • Step-In’s insurance specialists will review your insurance information and determine benefits. This will allow us to provide you an accurate expectation of costs and coverage.

Plan Review and Pre-Authorization

  • You will be given a copy of the Treatment Plan and an opportunity to review with the BCBA. This is a good time to clarify questions and offer feedback on the plan. Please make note of the “Parent Goals” at this time.

  • Step-In’s Insurance specialists will follow your insurance requirements to initiate the process of a prior-authorization (if needed).

Direct Sessions Begin

  • Once the treatment plan is approved and all insurance authorization (if necessary) is in place, direct sessions will begin. At initial intake, you will have provided schedule preferences and this will be used to develop a proposed schedule.

Insurance coverage note: Step-In Autism Services makes every effort to ensure that the intake process is as smooth as possible. Depending on the funding source (ie. insurance coverage) there may be additional steps and waiting periods. Please understand that these delays are out of our control and if initiating services prior to obtaining proper authorization, will result in out-of-pocket costs to you.
