Information for Parents and Guardians

Below are some forms you may need in the course of our working relationship together, as well as information about our commitment to your privacy.  Some of this information can be complicated - please contact us if you have any questions or need help.

Your Health Privacy

HIPPA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a law consisting of a set of rules designed to make it easier for individuals to keep health insurance and protect and keep private individuals’ health care information.
ABA & Verbal Behavior Group is committed to creating an environment that maintains clients’ trust and safeguards their rights to privacy. This culture of confidentiality is our ethical and legal responsibility.
