Autism Waiver Meeting in Conway
Made it to the Autism Waiver Meeting in Conway. Very informative -State will be providing ABA style services via a medicaid waiver with the random selection of 100 kids from the list that apply. Then they will start a waiting list. Age range of those eligible is not set in stone but looking like birth through 10 being the age to apply. Waiver only lasts 3 years. Projecting services being in the field by January 2011 with the application process starting later this year. ABA is a fabulous program if is it a good fit for your family. Lots of research indicates major results from the intervention and programming for the child. I am excited to see this coming to our state and hopefully funding will only increase!
