The state assistance insurance covered all speach, OT, DT and the period where we had an aid assisting him at daycare. Our regular insurance would not have covered anything. Please look into this to see if this is an option in your state. Good luck!
We are in Minnestoa. We got the diagnosis from the OT, but I guess she can not give an "official" diagnosis. We sent Teegan to a Phycologist, but I felt he was worthless and a waste of time. We now have the kids on a 5 month waiting list for an appoitment at the Univerisy of Minnesota Autimsm clinic. They do a couple full days of testing with several different specialist. Once we have something from them we may have some more options... I'm really hoping that will be the case!
