Intake Process

1. Inquiries are received by our Intake Coordinator who obtains information and sends an initial intake package.

2. After the initial intake packet is completed, please mail, fax or scan the information into the Intake Coordinator. Please include previous evaluations, school reports, and other relevant records.

3. The Intake Packet is reviewed by MAC’s Mental Health Professionals. The Mental Health Professionals take into account the following when reviewing the packet:

Previous ASD diagnoses
Presenting symptoms of ASD
Significant behavioral issues
Adaptive skills deficits
Cognitive functioning
Availability of services
Requested services
Funding sources

4. After the information is reviewed, the family is contacted to discuss any questions or concerns that arise (availability, funding, clinical concerns, etc.). If the child is appropriate for services, he/she is placed on the waitlist. If MAC services are not appropriate, the Mental Health Professional will notify the family.

5. Upon availability of our Mental Health Professionals, the family is asked to come to one of our MAC locations for an assessment. An assessment will not be scheduled unless all required paperwork and insurance verification are acquired. Assessments are conducted with a Licensed Mental Health Professional.

6. When an opening is available the family is contacted to begin services. Since we provide therapy in a variety of settings, many factors affect the availability. Location, availability, and staffing make it difficult to predict when an opening may occur.
