I need help...
      #628 - 01/04/08 02:56 PM

My husband is in the military. My son is mod. classic autism (is verbal and responding well to ABA, biomed). My husband recently talked to his boss about PCSing (moving) to a location where we could get more services. Basically, we have no private speech, no private OT, no private PT. He gets 5 hours a week of speech at school, 1 hour a week of OT, and 10 hours of ABA (which I do on my own, and I'm not qualified). We are authorized 20 hours a week at $2500 cap, but the only person who will come out is charging $12000 for the first visit (we are very very very rural). So my husband put in for reassignment. We have to have a ranked ordered list to his boss by Monday. Here are the cities we can go to, what are your opinions about services (not ranked ordered):
1. Omaha, NE
2. Tampa, FL
3. Washington DC
4. Virgina Beach, VA
5. Colorado Springs, CO
6. San Antonio, TX
7. Baltimore, MD

Thank-you

Based on what I've seen and heard, MD is your best pick from that list. I've heard horror stories out of both CO & VA.

I live in Florida and services are ok, but unless you can qualify for the McKay Scholarship, things are really tough.

Not sure about TX, DC, or NE.....but I specifically remember reading some fantastic things about Maryland.

Good luck.

DC has some good services. Also, Bethesda MD, which is a half hour from DC, has a ton of services. If you move to DC, I would suggest moving to the MD side, as they have actual autism medicaid waivers.

I live in Texas and I am having to FIGHT for my son. I have to research everything to take to ARD (if I want my son to get the appropriate services). We have been lied to about things, then we have to turn around print the truth and show them otherwise.
