Illuminate ABA Therapy Autism Scholarship Programs (ASP)

Ohio Autism Scholarship Program

The Ohio Autism Scholarship Program at Illuminate ABA Therapy is an initiative that provides financial support to families in Ohio seeking quality ABA therapy for their children who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

It provides scholarships to eligible students with autism who are between the ages of 3-21 and enrolled into their district’s school.

General Overview

The Ohio Autism Scholarship Program offers parents the option to choose specialized education programs outside the traditional school system.

The scholarship aims to ensure that every child with autism has access to the therapeutic interventions they need to thrive.

Our Ohio Autism Scholarship Program provides vital services as outlined in the child’s individualized education program (IEP), ensuring personalized and effective support.

This gives the parents of children with autism who qualify for a scholarship the choice to send the child to a special education program other than the one operated by the school district of residence.

Common Questions About ABA Therapy

What does ABA stand for?

ABA is an acronym for Applied Behavior Analysis, also referred to as Behavioral Engineering. The ABA method is made up of scientifically progressive techniques used to improve or correct certain types of behavior. Working with children within the autism spectrum, the therapy has proven success in managing problematic behavior while developing social and academic skills.

What does BCBA stand for?

BCBA is an acronym for Board Certified Behavior Analyst - a professional therapist versed in the ABA methods with graduate-level certification. BCBAs provide behavior analytic services to outline specific plans and supervise and guide the ABAS work in improving or changing a child’s negative behavior.

Can you give me specific examples of behavior that ABA therapy focuses on?

The main focus is on improving social, reading, scholastic and communication skills. This includes life changing aspects of everyday interaction: personal hygiene and grooming, verbal and fine motor skills, as well as organizational tasks and responsibilities, such as setting the table or cleaning up after oneself.

Is there an age-appropriate time to begin ABA therapy?

Experts agree the sooner the better. In fact, children under age 5 are best suited to gain from the ABA therapy. Nonetheless, older children within the autism spectrum can benefit as well.

How do I know if my child needs ABA therapy?

 If you see signs that indicate your child may not be developing as he or she should, speak to your pediatrician. If your child is diagnosed with autism or on the spectrum, contact Illuminate as soon as possible for a tailored-made caring program that will get the best results for a bright beckoning future.
