Outpatient Therapy

The Hope Learning Center offers a team of specialists that will complete an initial evaluation with your child in order to develop an individualized, strengths-based treatment plan.  The necessity and frequency of therapy is based on the child's needs and is determined by the results of the evaluation.  Outpatient therapy will address goals related to medical necessity and the cost is typically covered by most major medical insurance companies.  

Parent involvement is crucial for your child's progress, and participation in your child's therapy session is encouraged. Parents can observe their child's session through a one way observation window, and then meet with the therapist after the therapy session to discuss progress.  The therapist will also provide you with suggestions to ensure your child's generalization of newly acquired skills to the home environment.

• Highmark   • Keystone Health Plan West    • Maxor    • TriCare     • Aetna      • Cigna

The Hope Learning Center offers a wide range of assessments for children and adolescents.  Assessments offered include:  

The Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (The VB-MAPP) is a criterion-referenced assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skill tracking system that is designed for children with autism and other individuals who demonstrate language delays. The overall results of the VB-MAPP will provide valuable information that will serve as a guide for the development of an effective individualized language, social skills and learning curriculum. 

The Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (The ABLLS™) is an assessment, curriculum guide, and skills tracking system for assessing skills in children with language and learning deficits.  The ABLLS is most commonly used to develop a comprehensive behavioral program for children with autism spectrum disorders.  

The Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) is generally considered to be a problem-solving process for addressing student problem behavior.  It relies on a variety of techniques and strategies to identify the purposes of specific behavior and to help IEP teams select interventions to directly address the problem behavior. Functional behavioral assessments should be integrated, as appropriate, throughout the process of developing, reviewing, and, if necessary, revising a student’s IEP.
