Autism Diagnostic Testing in Rhode Island

At our Rhode Island area locations, we offer autism diagnostic testing for young children. Early autism testing, detection and diagnosis can unlock access to early intervention services such as ABA, Speech and Occupational Therapy services.

Our testing process is set up so that there are time slots available every 2-3 weeks, so there is never a long wait list for this important testing.

Center Based ABA, Speech & OT Therapy

Bierman ABA provides ABA, Speech and OT Therapy programs to children with autism in two Rhode Island area autism centers designed to maximize learning opportunities for children. Center-based services have been shown to have significantly higher staff supervision and training, higher rates of exposure to peers, higher guarantee of a full-time schedule, and an overall much higher caregiver satisfaction.

Family Support and Services

We offer individual, couples, and family sessions to address the social and emotional needs of our families. Dr. Meints will work collaboratively with you to develop a personalized plan using evidence based approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, and Psychoeducation to address processing a new diagnosis, providing support, developing effective communication among family members, stress management, anger management, coping skills, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, effective co-parenting, and improving quality of life.

Our Rhode Island center is designed with the intention to be a place where children are truly excited to learn. The BACB guidelines for treatment recommend a minimum of 30 hours per week and up to 40 hours per week for children in need of intensive programming to treat skill defects across a variety of developmental domains. With this in mind, we designed centers that have many environments within one setting, so that children are constantly exposed to new learning opportunities, social interactions, and experiences.
