In-School ABA Therapy

Hummingbird ABA Therapy provides ABA therapy to children in their typical school settings if clinically necessary. Some people refer to our school services by old terms that were used, either “Wraparound” or “TSS,” but has now changed to BHT services.

BHT Support in the Classroom


Your child’s Behavioral Health Technician (BHT) will work with them to assist them in their individualized goals while in the classroom setting with supervision and oversight by the ABA Supervisor. 


Like all of our ABA services, the scheduled times and intensity of services will be determined based on clinical need after assessing the needs within the school setting. For some children, the morning meeting or circle time is the biggest struggle, and we focus on providing services then; for others, it is lunch and recess. Your child’s ABA Supervisor will collaborate with their teachers and school support to ensure that their BHT is scheduled to work with them when necessary for your child’s success. 


For many of our elementary-aged clients who qualify, we offer the option to continue with their ABA Therapy at our center for after-school hours, on days off from school, or for our Summer Services in the summer months to avoid regression of skills.

Benefits of In-School ABA Therapy

Benefit from targeted skill development in the school setting with In-School ABA Therapy. This approach ensures seamless integration, generalizing learned behaviors in academic and social contexts. Collaborative monitoring and support from educators enhance academic success and social development. 

In-School ABA Therapy is often used with Home-Based and Center-Based services, offering a cohesive support system for comprehensive growth.


How to Start Services

Before getting on our waitlist, please review the following information about our services: 

Your first step to receiving ABA Therapy with us is to get on our waitlist. When we are approximately 3 months away from being able to being your child's assessment, someone from our office will send you an intake packet with forms to complete and request that you send us a Written Order for ABA Services from an existing behavioral health or physical health provider that your child has seen within the last 6 months recommending ABA Therapy. We also will require a copy of the most recent diagnostic report. Once we receive all required documentation, we will assign your child to an ABA Supervisor and they will reach out to schedule the 3-4 week long assessment, which includes at least 3 observations of the child in various settings and situations.

It is important to note that if your child does not have an autism diagnosis, commercial insurance will not typically cover ABA services, but it will be covered by Medical Assistance. If your child does not currently have Medical Assistance (which they should qualify for if they have a diagnosis that qualifies them for ABA Therapy), it is recommended that you apply online at the Compass Website in order to ensure coverage for services.
