Q: Is the Autism Academy a school?
AASC is a not-for-profit behavioral health center, not a licensed school. SC law requires children between the ages of 6-16 to be enrolled in public, private, or home school. Parents are strongly encouraged to verify with their school district that ABA Therapy will be considered an excused absence before enrolling.
Q: What ages do you serve?
We serve children between the ages of 2 to 21.
Q: Do you provide home therapy?
The Autism Academy is a clinic based model only.
Q: What are your hours of operations?
AASC operates Monday—Friday from 8:30am to 3:30pm. We do not provide after school, evening, or weekend services.
Q: How is scheduling determined?
Schedules are determined based on the assessment and your insurance benefits or tuition rates. Most clients attend 14-35 hours per week. Our staff will work with you to create a schedule that fits your needs.
Q: How does the waiting list process work?
We are committed to providing the highest quality of therapy. We limit our enrollment numbers to ensure high therapist to client ratio. If space is full, clients will be placed on a waiting list on a first come first serve basis. Parents will be notified when space becomes available.
Q: Will my child have an assigned therapist?
Each client is assigned a case manager and behavior therapist. Therapist assignments may vary based on scheduling needs and to ensure generalization of skills across multiple therapists.
Q: Do we accept Medicaid or the PDD Waiver?
Unfortunately, we do not accept Medicaid or the PDD Wavier at this time.
Q: Do we provide scholarships?
We do not have scholarships available at this time.
Q: Do you provide lunch?
Many children with ASD have special dietary needs. As a result, we request that parents provide all meals and snacks on a daily basis.
