Our Treatment Services For Autism Spectrum Disorder
The staff at Trusty Behavioral Services provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism and other intellectual or developmental disabilities ranging from 2 to 21 years old. Early interventions help your child learn developmentally appropriate language and learning skills and can curb unwanted behaviors as early as two years old. Children tend to respond more positively and achieve the greatest positive outcomes the earlier they start treatment.
ABA is the most effective evidence-based treatment approach for children with autism. It can truly help people change behaviors that have led to difficulties in their lives. Our staff uses only positive reinforcement to help people with autism begin to change specific behaviors and improve functioning.
Our services can focus on reducing challenging behaviors and teaching new skills. Some of the skill areas we often address include:
- Communication skills
- Conversational skills
- Eye Contact
- Playing with peers
- Making friends
- Following instructions
- Personal hygiene
- Sensory challenges
- Highly restricted interests
- Inflexibility with routines
What does treatment look like?
Our treatment services begin with a comprehensive assessment completed by the BCBA to determine your child’s individual needs. From there, we develop an individualized treatment plan for your child that focuses on your child’s strengths, deficits, and preferences.
Behavior analysis helps us understand how specific behaviors are taking place and how these behaviors may be affected by the environment so that we may be able to effectively create a positive change.
Once the treatment plan is in place, the RBT will work one-on-one directly with your child to teach him or her the skills outlined in the treatment plan. The RBT will also work to reduce any problematic or challenging behaviors that your child may exhibit. In addition to direct therapy, the BCBA will provide parent training so you can help your child generalize the skills he/she learned during therapy.
We offer services in a clinic as well as in the comfort of your own home or your local community. Our clinic within The Elaine Clark Center offers families the option to enroll their child in daycare and additional services all at the same location they receive ABA therapy.
Using this well-researched approach, we will help your family make the necessary adjustments to improve functioning and establish more peace.
Who provides the service?
All patients have a Behavior Analyst that oversees all aspects of treatment in addition to an ABA Technician that will provide the 1:1 direct therapy. All of our staff are credentialed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Our Behavior Analysts are all Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and our Technicians are Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT).
Our staff is our greatest asset so we take pride in making sure they are equipped to deliver services that result in high levels of patient satisfaction. All staff undergoes rigorous background checks, CPR training, Professional Crisis Management Training, and ongoing continuing education and development beyond what is required for their credentialing.

Contact us so we can verify that your insurance covers our services. After verifying coverage, most insurance plans require a pre-authorization before we can complete an assessment.
We will request authorization from your insurance on your behalf. Once insurance notifies us of the pre-authorization then we can schedule an intake assessment right away.
