Family Autism Treatment Scholarships
Right now in Michigan there is an insurance parity law attempting to make it’s way through the legislature. The bills call for coverage of autism and related conditions, including a variety of therapies. While there is much I could write about this topic, and the Michigan legislation in particular, I’ll save that for another day. The reason I bring it up in this post is because this legislation spotlights the significant need many families (in Michigan and everywhere else) have for financial support of treatment for their children.
In the absence of state or insurance-funded financial support for treatment, families are left to pay out-of-pocket. While this is an option for many families, it is not an option for others. This is why scholarship funds, such as the CORE Approach Scholarship Fund, are so important. These groups provide families that have significant financial limitations access to funding for treatment. The CORE Approach Fund specifically supports families who wish to pursue Relationship Development Intervention (CORE Approach) treatment. Like the majority of scholarship funds, there are far more families requesting funding than there are funds to go around.
In an effort to increase awareness about autism, remediation, CORE Approach, and the CORE Approach Scholarship Fund, we are proud to be providing donations to the scholarship fund this month (National Autism Awareness Month). For every person who signs up for our weekly email newsletter, On the Horizon, at www.horizonsautism.com, we will make a donation to the scholarship fund. If you haven’t already signed up for the newsletter – please click here now and help us reach our goal of 1,000 new subscribers this month!! We also encourage you to pass this information along to everyone you know who can benefit. You are not only helping to spread the word about remediation, but you are also helping support the much-needed CORE Approach Scholarship Fund.
Until next week,
