What makes Ready, Set, Connect! different?

Our autism services for children are center-based, and that means our children come together in a common location, which blends individualized teaching with group learning. We have circle times, jungle gyms, art projects, and toys as far as the eye can see—and all the while our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapists are measuring skills, tracking data, and building a personal, caring relationship with your child.

In addition, we offer regular parent consultations and training sessions as well as play clinics, all designed to empower families to continue the learning in their own homes.

Ready, Set, Connect! accepts Medicaid and private insurance.

For your first appointment at Ready, Set, Connect! you will need to bring:

  • Your child’s insurance card
  • A copy of the comprehensive evaluation from the time of the autism diagnosis
  • A letter stating that ABA services are medically necessary, signed by a physician (not a nurse)

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

ABA isn’t a bunch of stodgy clinicians in white lab coats scribbling furiously on legal pads. Within Ready, Set, Connect! ABA is, simply, a treatment approach that is highly customized to the child, built to encourage tasks that lead to skill development.

Every Ready, Set, Connect! child is given an extremely thorough assessment at the start, using gold-standard assessment tools, VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program) and AFLS (Assessment of Functional Living Skills). These are incredibly detailed assessments, measuring individual skill levels. From that, our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) create learning objectives, tailored specifically to each child. Throughout a child’s day at Ready, Set, Connect! our one-on-one ABA therapists work toward each learning objective. There can be over 20 learning objectives in play at any one time!

In real-time, our therapists are inputting data into our web-based metrics tool and working in conjunction with our BCBAs, challenges are identified, objectives are updated, and successes are built upon. Oh—and all of this clinical expertise is happening while your child is having a great time playing with friends, climbing a jungle gym, or enjoying a story at circle time!
