The Scott Center is able to process some insurance claims at this time.
Clients are placed on the waiting list after completing the intake process. First, a referral must be sent to the Scott Center for Autism Treatment. Referrals can be made by parents, teachers, physicians, etc. Families will then be sent a screening form to determine whether the services provided by the center are appropriate in meeting the family’s needs. If services are not appropriate, the client will be referred to another agency. If services are appropriate, an initial assessment will be conducted in which staff from the Scott Center meet with the family to directly observe the client. At this point, one of three things may happen: the client may be admitted to the center immediately, the client may be placed on the waiting list, or the client may be referred to an outside agency.
Currently, there is a short waiting list for the Early Intervention Program. There is no waiting list for the Social Skills program. We accept new clients based on staff availability, the severity of problem behavior and the duration of time spent on the waiting list.

The Scott Center for Autism Treatment provides early intensive behavior intervention (EIBI) to children ranging in age from 1 to 8 years. Services for children beyond this age range may be provided on a case-by-case basis. Social skills behavioral services are offered for children primarily between 5-14 years of age. Services are also offered for all age groups in developmental issues and family counseling.
The Scott Center for Autism Treatment is a learning institution for graduate and undergraduate students majoring in applied behavior analysis or psychology. This means that multiple graduate and undergraduate students will work directly with your child to provide behavior analytic services. Their work is supervised by doctoral level Board Certified Behavior Analysts.
