Information for Prospective Clients

If you have never been to the Scott Center before, you need to submit a Prospective Client Request form. Requests for services to evaluate or treat autism spectrum disorder will be reviewed by our staff within five to ten days. Individuals seeking psychotherapy are usually scheduled for an intake appointment within one week of submitting the Prospective Client Request form.

If we can provide applicable services, we will make every effort to schedule you for an appointment. Our ability to provide services depends on the needs of the client, age of the client, and the availability of our staff.  If we’re unable to schedule you for services at this time, you will be added to the waiting list.

Frequently Asked Questions

Important Information About Health Insurance

Our mission is to help as many individuals, children, and families as possible. You can help us do that by finding out important information about your insurance coverage ahead of time so that you are prepared if we contact you.

You’ll need to know some details about your specific behavioral health benefits. If possible, speak with an autism care specialist or autism caseworker at your insurance provider.

  • Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

How Many Visits are Covered?
The number of visits covered by your insurer will vary depending on the specific type of service you receive.

What Are Your Behavioral Health Plan Costs and Payments?
Based on the your network and coverage, your insurer can tell you your costs and payments. Keep asking until you’re satisfied that you understand the answer – you’re paying for the coverage and that’s their job!

Make sure you get answers to these key questions. Talk to an autism care specialist or autism caseworker if possible, and ask:

What are my co-pay or co-insurance costs for my visits to the Scott Center?

  • What is my annual deductible?
  • Is my annual deductible for individual or family visits?
  • Do I have out of pocket expenses in addition to my deductible?
  • Do I have an out of pocket expense maximum, after which I’ll have pay the full amount myself?
  • If I have an out of pocket fee or responsibility, does my deductible apply to the out of pocket expense?
  • If you have an out of pocket fee or responsibility, does my co-pay apply to the out of pocket?

How do I get on a waiting list?

Those seeking behavioral health services for autism spectrum disorder 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.

How long is the waiting list?

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.

I can not come to The Scott Center in person, can I still get services?

For families that can not come to the Scott Center in person, we provide behavior analytic services to the following states via telehealth: California, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Arkansas, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Maine, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida.
