You have just learned that your child has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Whether the news comes as a surprise or was expected — almost all parents of a child diagnosed with autism struggle to reimagine their child’s future. You are not alone, and it is normal to feel this way.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Health Statistics Reports have estimated that a child born in the U.S. has a 2 to 3 percent chance of being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Autism occurs across all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. Rates for boys are four times higher than that for girls.

How Help Happens
How We Work
Early intervention therapy is critical for children diagnosed with autism. Studies have shown that children who receive early intervention ABA therapy are more likely to make progress in their development than those who do not. An early intervention program can also improve the long-term outlook of children diagnosed with autism.
There’s no need to wait months before your child can start ABA therapy. Opya has child behavioral therapists ready to create a customized ABA therapy care plan for your child and family. Starting therapy and in-home autism services just takes a few steps after your child has a formal diagnosis of autism.
In-Home ABA Therapy
In-Home ABA therapy allows your child to receive the same high-quality care that they would receive at a center but in the comfort of their own home. This can help your child feel more relaxed and less anxious, which can lead to better results.
Parent training is an essential part of early intervention for children diagnosed with autism. Our parent training programs help parents learn about autism and how to best support their child’s development.
The Opya App
One of our core beliefs at Opya is that connectivity must be at the heart of any autism therapy program. The HIPAA-compliant Opya app allows us to connect with you and your child between appointments.
