Applied Behavior Analysis
Emily Epperson, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who supervises and provides ABA (applied behavior analysis) services for children diagnosed with autism
spectrum disorder and other developmental delays. After receiving a doctor’s prescription for
ABA services, Learning Solutions will complete paperwork with your insurance then proceed
with an initial assessment. The initial assessment includes an office visit and additional
paperwork and conducted by a BCBA (Behavior Analyst) who will oversee the treatment plan.
ABA plans are individualized to the learner’s strengths and deficits. Typically, ABA occurs
multiple times per week to provide consistent learning opportunities for teaching new skills and
reducing any challenging behaviors. Depending on the insurance provider, we are typically able
to offer parent/caregiver meeting with the case supervisor to discuss progress and learn new
skills for the learner in their home environment. During the ABA sessions, the behavior
therapist working with the learner will target age-appropriate skills with pre-academic needs,
social skills and other independent areas of learning deemed important to parents.
