SOAR is offering a new early childhood intensive behavioral intervention day treatment program, funded and initiated statewide by the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA). This program will increase access to ABA therapy for many families who are on Medicaid. The day treatment program provides individuals with autism an intensive experience of ABA therapy. It also provides valuable training and resources to families who are curious about ABA and are navigating their child’s diagnosis, and it also allows families with Medicaid to bypass the long waitlist process.
