Military Autism Program and Services “MAPS”

What services do we provide?

The Knapp Center for Childhood Development is offering in home ABA services for military families across the United States and overseas. Many military families have difficulty obtaining behavior intervention services due to the lack of trained professionals in remote areas or due to frequent changes in location. We are offering a program in which your child can benefit from ABA services regardless of location in which you reside. We can also assist with transitions from one location to another to ensure continuity of intervention.

How does the program work?

First, several qualified adults in your area interested in providing one-on-one behavior therapy will be identified and interviewed by the Knapp Center. The final two-three applicants for the position will then be interviewed by the family. The family has the final decision on selecting their ABA tutor. The Knapp Center will then provide the individual and the family with intensive training on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (for a minimum of 40 hours) via Skype or other internet video networking sites. Once the training is complete, the tutor will be responsible for providing one-on-one ABA therapy utilizing the Knapp Center ABA curriculum under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) from the Knapp Center via Skype. The Knapp Center will lead the team to make treatment decisions, modify interventions, guide programming, and monitor progress.

Who qualifies for services?

If you are a military family with a child diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder between the ages of 2 and 7 you may qualify for in home ABA programming through the Knapp Center for Childhood Development. If your child is older than 7 and does not have any significant problem behaviors you may also qualify. All families interested in programming must have access to a computer with internet connection.
