Increasing prevalence, high costs and state mandate requirements make managing services for children with autism and their families more important than ever.
Consider these statistics:
- 1 in 36 children have autism in the U.S.
- Treatment costs have increased to $60,000 annually per person
- All 50 states have taken government action to require coverage for Applied Behavior Analysis
In addition, many individuals struggle to obtain access to appropriate autism services. Few treatment standards, limited care coordination, inconsistent provider quality and significant costs often become barriers to care.
