Getting Started

UPDATE: Even with the recent increase, South Carolina Medicaid's reimbursement rate for ABA therapy is unsustainable, making it impossible for us to accept new clients whose primary funding is through Medicaid, the PDD Waiver, TEFRA or BabyNet.  Please contact us so that we can add your name to the list of those who are not being served to help us demonstrate the need for better rates to the SC Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS), the state agency that administers Medicaid.  We encourage you to also contact SCHDDS, our governor, and your state legislators to express your concerns about this issue.  For more details, see below under "Funding Information." 

If you are interested in receiving ABA therapy from Hope Reach, please fill out our HOPE Services Application

Once your information from the application has been reviewed, you will receive a Client Information Questionnaire from our intake coordinator.  This will give us the information we need to prepare for a Prospective Client Evaluation Session with you, your child and one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA).  There is a $125 administrative fee for this evaluation. 

Once this initial evaluation has been completed, we will make a recommendation for a specific placement for your child.  If you accept this recommendation, you will be placed on our waiting list and given a numerical number and tentative wait time for this specific placement.
