Frequently Asked Questions – ABA

About Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive about our ABA services. Please contact us for more information by calling 757-455-6100 or email admissions@barryrobinson.org

Who can refer a child?

We accept referrals from primary care managers. Children transitioning from The Barry Robinson Center’s residential program can be referred by our attending physicians.

What age groups do you serve?

We serve children and teens, ages 2-18.

How long will we need to wait before services begin?

Typically, we need about 10 days for approval. For children stepping down from our residential program, we submit assessment requests several weeks prior to discharge to allow for as seamless a transition as possible.

What insurances do you accept?

TRICARE, and the family needs to be enrolled in TRICARE’s ECHO program.

What geographic area do you serve?

Chesapeake, Norfolk and Virginia Beach, with plans to expand coverage into other parts of Hampton Roads, Virginia, based on demand for service.

How do you involve other family members in counseling sessions?

We expect at least one parent/guardian/ or responsible adult living in the home to participate in treatment services. All of our counseling sessions are youth-centered and family-focused.
