Below are resources for families affected by autism. They are listed in alphabetical order. The list is not all-inclusive, but includes places our patients have used. We do not endorse one provider over another. It can be a very personal choice and we encourage you to research your options and choose the best fit for your family.
Look at your insurance list of preferred providers and see how they cover non-preferred providers if you think a non-covered provider might be the best choice for your child due to location, availability, treatments offered, and/or personal choice.
