Welcome! We are excited for your interest in ABC Social Skills group. The first step is to fill out our inquiry form. You can also call the clinic at (703) 857-2157 for more information. After you submit an inquiry form one of our BCBAs will contact you to set up an initial intake. The initial intake includes a caregiver interview and an assessment that will give us a better idea about your child’s social skills. The initial intake costs $150.
For social skills specifically, Aurora Behavior Clinic is in network with the following insurances: Cigna, Carefirst, Aetna, Magellan, Blue Cross Blue Shield & Optum. We will work with you and you insurance to navigate your eligibility and benefits. Unfortunately, Medicaid does not cover social skills group therapy. If you are interested in choosing insurance as the funding source, please email Janelle Mcdonald at firstname.lastname@example.org
We currently have 2 groups; Level 1 (younger/severe social skills deficits) and Level 2 (older/ moderate social skills deficits). We place children based on their age and assessment scores. This process will be outlined in detail during the initial intake.
We believe caregiver involvement is essential! You will not be part of the actual class but we still want you involved in our process. During the initial intake we will create caregiver goals, with the hope to increase generalization of the skills we teach. You will also get a weekly handout of the skills taught and how to incorporate them outside of the group.
