Private ABA providers
Texas Health and Human Services Children's Autism Program
The Health and Human Services Children's Autism Program provides focused Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment for children ages 3 through 15 years of age with a diagnosis of autism. Focused ABA treatment is targeted to address a few specific outcomes instead of all developmental needs of the child. Treatment is limited to 180 hours within a 12-month period. Depending on the provider, treatment may be provided in the home, community, school, or treatment center. Fee for treatment is based on a sliding scale (possible deductions will be taken into consideration before your cost share is assigned).

Medicaid Waiver Programs
Medicaid Waiver programs can include some BCBA services in addition to many other services. Currently the waiting lists for these programs can be quite long but FEAT-Houston recommends EVERY parent sign up for the "interest lists" for these programs as soon as possible. They will become very important for the future of your individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder. There are two basic calls to make to get on these lists. Find out more here:
- Behavior Treatment and Training Center - Texana Center
- Camp Worth: 30-60 day residential setting for 11 to 17-year-old boys or girls diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder Level 1 or 2.
