Does insurance cover these services?

The Social Learning Center, LLC. does NOT take insurance for social groups.  At the end of each month, you will receive a statement with the diagnostic and procedures codes you will need so that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement depends solely on the type of insurance provider you currently have. For more information on this, please email Lisa at l.dempseySLC@gmail.com 

The SLC does take check, credit cards and cash for services. 

The SLC Counseling Associates, LLC, a branch of the Social Learning Center does accept Husky and Anthem for individual counseling sessions. 

How much do services cost?

Rates for services are fixed by the business office every January 1. Rates will vary depending on the service and the clinician you are interested in working with. For more information on our current rates please call our office at 203-250-0305.

Do we prescribe medications?

No, we do not have any psychiatrists or APRN's on staff. We can make recommendations for local providers who can assess the possible need for medication.

Can my child join a group mid session?

Depending on the age of the group, most groups will allow up to 4-5 participants. Groups are kept small to protect the efficacy of the program and ensure individualized support.  

Although it is not a common practice at the SLC to bring in new clients after the start of the session, a new client may enter an existing group based on the fit of the client to the group and the number of clients in the group at that time.

Do you contract for in home services?

No.  The Social Learning Center does not have the staff to provide in home social or behavioral support. Recommendations for other agencies who do provide such services can be made by Chris Abildgaard. 

Do we offer family / parent support?

There is a large family component to our all sessions. If a family is interested in more direct support/counseling, we are happy to accommodate that on an as needed basis. 

what is the best way to have chris consult on my son’s / daughter’s educational program?

Chris loves being able to consult to local school districts for the purposes of building competences among staff. The best way to have Chris consult on a case is through the PPT process. Chris works in collaboration with the district and family to help support the student’s need. Chris regrets not being able to take on every case due to his clinical schedule but will review as many cases as possible and provide his clinical opinion/recommendations to the school and family.
