What is RSA?
RSA is FEAT of Washington’s year round early intervention program. Launched in fall of 2006, RSA provides high-quality ABA-based intervention services for young children with autism and their socially typical peers 3-8 years of age. We offer a center-based Applied Behavioral Analysis program, modeled after a Precision Teaching-based learning environment. Children move from one-on-one teaching and group instruction opportunities throughout the day and benefit from frequent data collection that informs effective teaching methods and skill acquisition.

RSA Learner Outcomes
Since its inception, RSA has recorded wonderful benefits to learners who participate in the program. Average students on the autism spectrum approximately double their rate of development across RSA’s wide battery of standardized tests in the areas of social skills, language skills, adaptive behavior skills, cognitive and motor skills over baseline rates. And, the data show that typically developing children more than double their rates of development by participating in the RSA program when compared to the social development rates for other typically developing peers.
RSA Learner Happiness and Parent Satisfaction
In addition to measuring how well learners respond to the intervention they receive through RSA, our staff also measure how happy the learners are as they receive intervention and how satisfied the learners’ parents are with RSA.
RSA’s learners are consistently very happy with the intervention they receive, and RSA parents consistently give RSA top marks in terms of their satisfaction with the program.
Parents choose to pay privately for our services or by directing us to bill their insurance provider. At this time, we bill Premera Microsoft, Premera Amazon and Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance plans, and we often request single case agreements with other insurance providers. We anticipate confirmation of in-network contracting with Aetna by January 2016. We will update our website to keep families informed of any additions or changes.
