Once all documents are gathered, please complete our agency's referral form in its entirety and email it to email@example.com or fax it to 407-395-3487 (attn. ABA intake)
Once all required documents are received and authorization from your insurance provider has been granted, one of our skilled BCBAs will contact your family to schedule an intake session. At this time additional documents (IEPs, Psychoneurological, Medical documents, etc.), will be reviewed. An in-depth assessment (e.g. VB-MAPP, FAST, etc), will be conducted by the Analyst, as well as a direct observation of the client will be conducted. (approx. 2 hours for total assessment).
Once goals are determined, the Analyst will develop a detailed assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) and submit it to your insurance provider. ***The amount of hours requested for services will be determined based on the medical necessity identified at intake.

LaTeisha Jackson, M.Ed., BCBA
Having experience with close family members with disabilities, she has always had a curiosity to learn more about the different exceptionalities, which evolved into a strong desire to help those in need. After graduating from High School in Farmington Hills, Michigan, she left for Tallahassee Florida, to pursue a degree in Special Education from Florida State University. She obtained both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, with a focus in Transition. After graduation, she moved to Orlando, Florida where she served 6 years in the public school system, as an ESE teacher (2012-2015) and Behavior Specialist (2015-2018) at a separate day school with students with severe emotional and behavioral disabilities.
In 2013 she began her pursuit as a Behavior Analyst, where she continued her Education at the Florida Institute of Technology. While working in the school system, she spent her evenings providing in-home behavior therapy to families with children with severe behavior concerns. In 2019, she obtained certification in Organizational Behavior Management , where she trained to apply behavior analytical practices in the workplace to improve productivity and safety. She has experience in working in several ABA clinics and agencies, group homes and schools.
LaTeisha has always had a passion and desire to help meet the needs of those with exceptionalities, and is excited launching the FaTaj Transition & Learning Center as a vessel to continue doing so!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
V. M., Program Director
I met the parent of a former client of your last night at a school event in Apopka. She took the time to tell me how “amazing” your services were and described them as “life changing” for the entire family. She reported that her son went from very destructive, tantrumming throughout the day and not potty trained to a typical child in a regular ed kindergarten class. Even though you discharged over a year ago she is still very thankful for your services. I know that you change the lives of your clients/families daily but love to hear such high and genuine praise. Thank you all your hard work and dedication!
What our parents have to say:
LaTeisha has taught my entire family strategies on how to handle positive and negative behaviors. She is super awesome and we looked forward to having her in our home every week. Our family from our youngest that is 4 yrs old to our oldest that is 8 has learned something good that they now practice.
My grandbaby attends FaTaj Transition center. She has greatly improved her behavior and social skills. Her potty training is going well. I highly recommend FaTaj's center.
Very friendly staff my grandsons love going there
