Dominion Care provides a full range of autism services in Richmond, Roanoke, and Tidewater. Our autism services provide individualized care through targeted applied behavior analysis with a focus on three main areas of growth – communication, social skills and challenging or interfering behaviors. Each individual and family’s voice is essential to ensure that individuals develop new skills and self-regulation strategies that work best for them. We know that parents and guardians are essential members of our team, and we partner with families for treatment planning, and to provide ongoing training and support. Collaboration between other service providers to ensure continuity of care across home, school, and other therapies, is welcome and encouraged!

Our passionate clinicians utilize evidence-based practices in applied behavior analysis, education, and trauma-informed care as the foundation of instruction and intervention. Our team approach to service delivery incorporates care through the hands-on involvement of our Board-Certified Behavior Analysts and Assistant Behavior Analysts in all aspects of therapy. Under the supervision of BCBAs and BCaBAs, highly trained behavior therapists deliver high quality behavior analysis services and target skills that will open doors to community inclusion for your loved one.

Additionally, we offer specialized support to parents and caregivers to ensure that you are receiving the care and help you need to address behaviors and skill development outside of session times. At Dominion Care, there are no minimum weekly hours of therapy required. While there is benefit to more weekly therapy hours, our programs are designed to work for your child and/or adolescent and their support team’s lives.


Autism and Behavior Services 

In Home ABA

Dominion Care works with individuals (ages 18 months and up) and their families to provide applied behavior analysis (ABA) services in their homes or in our clinics to address communication, social skills, self-care and behavior differences. Our goal is to meet each family’s need for inclusion in their home community and work toward meaningful change.

EIBI- Early Intensive Behavior Intervention 

For young children (ages 18 months to 5 years) diagnosed with autism or a developmental delay/disability, our Early Intensive Behavior Intervention Clinics (EIBI) provides 25-35 hour a week care in a supportive, full-day setting where young learners can develop social, communication, and self-help skills. Through a preschool-style group format, young children can learn new developmental skills together, while also having opportunities for targeted 1:1 therapy with our behavior analysts and licensed special education staff throughout the day.

As with our older clients, we start first by recognizing that all behavior is communication and seek to find the message conveyed through any behavior. Once the function of behavior is determined, we work with children to target deficits in communication, social emotional skills, group skills and behaviors to better meet their needs, and provide increased access within their home, school, and community. Our EIBI clinic accepts all major insurance providers as well as Medicaid and TRICARE.


Autism Evaluations 

If you’re concerned your child may have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), an ADOS-2 assessment can help you identify their unique path to a happy and fulfilling life. ADOS-2, or Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – Second Edition, is the gold standard for assessing ASD in individuals. Dominion Care’s highly specialized and ADOS trained clinicians provide assessments, evaluations and educational program training for children and families.

ADOS-2 is not your typical doctor’s visit. It lasts 45 minutes to an hour and is natural and play-based, in which your clinician will lead your individuals through standardized activities to observe their behavior in key indicator areas like communication, social interaction and restricted and repetitive behaviors. ADOS-2 assessments are modular, designed to match the individuals age and communication levels. Every child has a unique story and history. An ADOS-2 assessment can help guide the next steps to finding their path to happiness and fulfillment.

ADOS-2 testing is Self-Pay or FAPT funded only.

Space is limited, so please be sure to request more information so that we can serve you as soon as space becomes available.
