Getting Started


At Mobile Bay ABA we strive to make our intake process as efficient and transparent as possible. If you are interested in ABA Therapy or believe you child may benefit from ABA Therapy please contact us or fill out our online application. The intake process varies depending on whether your insurance covers ABA Therapy or not. Please contact your insurance company or you HR representative to determine if your plan covers ABA Therapy.
