Mission Statement

To treat young children with developmental delays and emerging social concerns in the earliest months and years of life, in order to give every child we serve the chance to develop to his or her fullest potential and gain the greatest success and enjoyment of learning and life.

What is ABA?

For children who fall on the Autism spectrum, StarBright Applied Behavior Analyst offers a comprehensive and intensive approach known as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA focuses on increasing desired behaviors and reducing problematic behaviors through the use of reinforcement, shaping, prompting and other behavioral principles. StarBright’s ABA therapy is highly individualized and developed to meet the specific needs of each child.

At StarBright, we apply and incorporate in all our work the latest academic research and best clinical practice in the fields of child development, early childhood mental health, special education, and other therapeutic services in order to provide the highest quality of educational and therapeutic services to young children and their families.

Any insurance plan that uses Beacon Health Options and Beacon Health Strategies as their mental health administrator is accepted.

In November 2011, Governor Andrew Cuomo signing into law new requirements that compel health insurance companies to provide coverage for the treatment of individuals with autism. New York is the 29th state to enact such a legislation, which requires insurers to cover diagnosis and treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This law went into effect on November 2012 and opens the door for families to obtain services that have been previously deemed medically unnecessary.

Most of our clients receive insurance reimbursement for the services provided. This varies greatly according to your plan, as well as your child’s diagnosis. Benefits for ABA services require authorization and confirmation. The list provided does not constitute automatic benefit coverage.
