Serving the of Needs of Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and their Families
DORAL, FL – A Better Day Therapy Center, a 501c 3 non-profit organization, was born from the desire to help families who are affected by Autism and Related Disabilities access pragmatic and effective Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy.
Prior to 2010 in the State of Florida, there was no Medicaid or insurance coverage for ABA Therapy. Under Florida Medicaid waiver there was limited coverage which had been slowly cut affecting our patients. We opened the organization to help families access ABA therapy within their available financial constraints.
Autism Speaks successfully introduced legislation in Florida in 2008 for implementation beginning 2010. A Federal ruling in 2012 secured ABA therapy for all Florida Medicaid recipients under the age of 21.
Currently, all 50 US states have legislation mandating insurance coverage for individuals with Autism to cover ABA therapy. However, this coverage is still limited and at times come with high deductibles and co-payments or co-insurance.
This is where they can help. A Better Day Therapy Center has recently opened a state-of-the-art therapy center in the city of Doral. This center primarily provide ABA therapy with its affiliate company New Way Day Services.
During the summer, A Better Day Therapy Center assisted many families offset summer camp costs by making the center available for their children to come and receive therapy with the summer camp feel. The center is open on days in which schools are closed.
A Better Day Therapy Center provides activities during the day which promote social skills for all at the center no matter the age.
The center is also designed as a shared therapy space for other providers. The shared therapy space is essential to the continuity of care for your patients and to maintain the center’s sustainability. There are spaces which can be leased at reasonable costs.
