Does my child need a medical diagnosis to receive services?
The Responding to Autism Center does NOT require a medical diagnosis to take part in programs or services. The journey of getting a formal medical diagnosis for your child can be a lengthy process, sometimes taking 9 to 12 months. While waiting, you can begin to receive support, education, and guidance for your child and family.
Do you take medical or state insurance?
The Responding to Autism Center does not currently take insurance. Most of our services have a sliding fee scale or are free of charge. We do provide documentation for reimbursement for flexible spending account. We also have a variety of payment plans if needed. It is our goal to provide comprehensive, affordable services that are accessible to all families regardless of income.
What ages do you serve?
We have services and programs for children 18-months through adulthood. We also provide services for siblings, caregivers, educators, professionals, and more.
