Hi Melissa,

Sorry I'm late getting back to you. What state do you live in? Is your son on Medicaid? I live in Indiana and things are really slow here in regards to children w/autism. I was lucky in that My Mom got an apt in Brownsburg and took Temp custody of my son so that we could get him in a better school. Under her income my son qualified for Medicaid so all his meds and services are covered. I had private insurance but services were either not covered or I was stuck in the HMO doctor network. I have worked w/ a couple of non for profit agency that have helped me navigate the "red tape" for getting aid. I'm positive that in your situation the state / school has to provide services for your son. Thanks for responding to my email and please let me know what State and area you live in. -Sadie
