Autism and ABA Services
Aloha Behavioral Health and Home Care services provide quality, compassionate services for individuals diagnosed with autism or those who may be experiencing delays or deficits and may benefit from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA.)
Our behavior analysts and technicians provide ABA services for clients in the comfort of their own homes and communities, and schools.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) autism affects an estimated 1 in 54 children and 1 in 45 adults in the United States.
Applied Behavior Analysis at Aloha Behavioral Health
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy is an applied science, used for the treatment of autism and related learning or social disorders to reduce challenging behaviors and increase functional skills. Interventions based on the principles of ABA are evidence-based, with clearly defined procedures to address social, communication, behavioral, and self-help deficits. ABA is provided either one-on-one or in a group setting by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA®) and a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT™) who will implement and take data on programs detailed in the treatment plan.
Our behavior analysts and technicians provide ABA services for clients in the comfort of their own homes, communities, and schools.

How Do I Access These Services for My Child?
It is likely that services for individuals with autism will be covered by a medical insurance provider, Medicaid, or TRICARE. We will help you navigate your options by working directly with your insurance provider to determine eligibility for benefits. Private pay is also accepted.
We recommend you speak to your child’s physician about prescribing ABA therapy. You may also qualify for services through your child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) or school.
