If your child has recently been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) then you may be feeling confused, afraid, angry, and wondering what to do next. We understand, and we want to help.

You aren’t alone and there is hope for your child to live a fulfilling life because of the many resources and highly effective treatment programs available today. Let us help you learn more about the options available and determine which therapy provider can help meet the unique needs of your child and your family.

We’re Excited to Meet You and be a Part of Your Autism Therapy Journey

At Opya, we provide autism therapy for young children starting around 18 months and help them learn the life skills, social skills, and behavioral skills necessary to be ready for elementary school. Our compassionate clinicians receive highly specialized training for this age group, which makes them really good at what they do.

Our overarching goal is to graduate your child to the next big adventure in their life — elementary school — where they will receive age-appropriate treatment for the next phase of their journey.

While you complete our intake packet, we’ll run a courtesy check on your insurance coverage, and request authorization to conduct an assessment from your insurance company2. The good news is that we work with most health plans in your area.

Therapy Assessment

Therapy Assessment

A board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA) conducts a comprehensive assessment of your child to determine an appropriate treatment plan and discusses the recommendations with you. Our BCBA then submits the report to your insurance company to authorize treatment.

Care Team Assignment

Our Therapy Approach is Backed by Research

Our primary service is Applied Behavioral Analysis, or ABA therapy, the preferred behavioral intervention provided for autism therapy. ABA therapy focuses on teaching communication, self help and social skills, as well as developing the behaviors your child will need to be successful in school. We also provide speech and occupational therapy services depending on your child’s unique needs.

There is substantial scientific support for both early intervention treatment and ABA therapy. You can read more about the research supporting our therapies here.
