Hillcroft ABA Clinic opened in June 2010. Located in Muncie, Indiana, it is the only clinic offering behavioral treatment for children with autism spectrum disorders in the East Central Indiana area. Based upon the principles and technology of applied behavior analysis (ABA), Hillcroft ABA Clinic provides intensive therapy, individualized academic instruction, and social skills training for children ages 3 to 12 years. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will develop an individualized treatment plan for each child receiving services through the clinic. From the results of the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) and other assessment information, behaviorally-based language intervention programs are developed for children with language and other developmental delays. Licensed teachers give academic instruction in age-appropriate curriculum and collaborate with public school teachers in serving the needs of our young clients who also attend school. While most of therapy takes place within the clinic setting, given the therapeutic needs of the child and the preferences of the family, in-home therapy may also be provided.

ABA Clinic Staff
Clinic Director: Gina Davenport, Ma,BCABA
Clinic Administrator: Tom Donovan
The Hillcroft ABA Clinic delivers ongoing therapeutic services Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Children may be enrolled in a treatment program on a full-time or part-time basis. Every treatment program is based on a thorough assessment and daily behavioral measurements, along with the family's preferences.
All therapists providing direct services to children are trained extensively and supervised by BCBAs. Every therapist who administers direct services to children is required to have at least a bachelor's degree in special education, elementary education, psychology, or another related humanservice field. At the bachelor's level, the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) credential is especially desired.
Whether carried out by the clinic staff or accessed through partnerships
with other qualified professionals, a variety of services and therapies are
available for children enrolled in our treatment program at Hillcroft ABA
• One-on-one ABA therapy
• Play and social groups
• Music, dance, and art experiences
• Toilet training
• Speech therapy
• Occupational therapy
• Diagnostic Services
• Family training and support
Payment for therapy provided in the clinic is arranged through private insurance. Importantly, Indiana law mandates that any health insurance issued on a group basis or as an individual policy must include insurance coverage for individuals with pervasive developmental disorders (including children diagnosed with autism). Although Indiana Medicaid does not currently pay for ABA therapy, our billing specialist will work with families to help them navigate through the insurance maze, which can often be quite confusing.
To access the services that Hillcroft ABA Clinic offers, simply call the clinic for the intake interview. Once the intake interview is completed, an initial conference will be scheduled at the clinic to (a) discuss the specific needs of the child and (b) provide assistance with insurance coverage as may be required. If needed, an initial evaluation will be scheduled with our clinic psychologist to determine eligibility for services. A tour of the clinic will also be given at this time. Once eligibility has been determined and insurance authorization is received, a start date will be set and therapy will begin.
