What is this intervention?
LifeLong Interventions is a new service delivery model that provides comprehensive treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder, across skill domains and the lifespan. The service is rooted in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and involves intensive teaching and training using evidence-based practices to promote appropriate skills and behaviors in the home and community.
Who can receive the service?
Clients with ASD are accepted at any age, with treatment plans developed based on the results of intake and formal assessments.
Who provides the service?
Psychologists and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) in ASNC’s Clinical Department develop and directly oversee the intervention programs. All psychologists and BCBAs operate under the guidance of ASNC’s Clinical Director, Dr. Aleck Myers. Direct 1:1 training is provided by certified paraprofessionals who work under the direct supervision of our psychologists and BCBAs.
Where is the service offered?
ASNC is currently offering the LifeLong Intervention service in the Triangle (Durham, Orange, Wake, and Johnston counties) and greater Charlotte areas (Union, Iredell, Mecklenburg, Gaston, Lincoln, and Cabarrus counties). In the future, we plan to expand to other parts of North Carolina based on demand and available resources.
Who funds the service?
ASNC is an in-network provider for the North Carolina State Health Plan (SHP). Additionally, we are in the process of becoming credentialed and in-network with other insurance carriers such as Cigna, United Healthcare, and Aetna. Several employers in the greater Charlotte area have opted to provide coverage for autism treatment in their employee benefits package. If you do not know whether your insurance carrier offers coverage for autism treatment, call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card. You may also contact the ASNC clinical staff, who can help you determine whether you’re eligible for insurance reimbursement for this service. We also provide this intervention service via private-pay arrangements with families.
