Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of learning and motivation from Behavior Analysis, and the procedures and technology derived from those principles, to the solution of problems of social significance. Many decades of research have validated treatments based on ABA.

Services are individualized for each child that enrolls at the ABA Clinic. Some children may be working on skills related to language development, following instructions, and learning readiness skills, while other children are working on social skills, life skills, and replacement behaviors to aid behavior reduction.

The CCSN Behavioral Health ABA Clinic is located at 2300 Main Street in Glastonbury, CT.

We have daytime and afternoon hours available Monday through Friday. Our hours are 9:00 am – 6:00 pm.

We accept children of a variety of ages at the ABA Clinic. Toddlers and preschool children are welcome to attend during our morning hours, and school-aged children up to 12 years old are welcome after school.

CCSN Behavioral Health offers private-pay options and also accepts most commercial insurance payors including Anthem, Aetna, Optum, United Healthcare, ConnectiCare, Oxford, Harvard Pilgrim, and Husky. To check your insurance eligibility, please call our office at 860-430-1762 so we can verify your benefits.

Call the CCSN Behavioral Health information line (860) 430-1762 and our staff will conduct an interview over the phone to gather information so that the ABA Clinic Coordinator can call to schedule an intake.

After verification of your insurance benefits, a one-hour session will be scheduled with caregivers in order to determine the most appropriate treatment for the child. At this time, we will discuss the assessment process and schedule any additional appointments needed for assessment.

The ABA Clinic can provide a variety of assessments including skills-based assessments, social skills assessment, and functional assessments of behavior. During the first intake session, you and your BCBA will determine which assessment(s) should be conducted.

Our senior level BCBAs provide direct clinical oversight to your child’s ABA program with the assistance of a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT).

There is a strong parent training component to all treatment at the ABA Clinic. Parents receive minimally 1 hour a week of parent training that is individualized to meet the needs of the child in the home and community.

On a case-by-case basis, the BCBA working with your child may identify specific objectives for community-based intervention. Children receiving community-based intervention are required to participate in the ABA Clinic and parents are required to participate in training sessions.

Social skills groups are coordinated for children on an individual basis. Children are carefully matched with peer(s) to ensure that all children make progress socially. If you are interested in social skills groups for your child, please contact the CCSN Behavioral Health info line (860) 430-1762 and our staff will gather information so that the Coordinator of the ABA Clinic can call to schedule an intake.
