Every State Has Autism Services
Across the country, each state has its own way of providing services for children with autism. States may have different services, names for these systems, and ease of access. You should know there are autism resources available to help. The basic framework falls under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Every State Can Help You Navigate the Confusing World of School Funding
Federal law requires public schools to provide special education and related services to eligible students with disabilities at no cost to the parents.
Medicaid funding is different in every state state.
Each state must provide some coverage for autism treatment through its Medicaid program, and each state decides which services are medically necessary. Depending on your state, applied behavior analysis (ABA) may or may not be covered.
Reach out to your local chapter of the Autism Society of America to find out what’s covered in your area.
Mandated coverage may be limited to specific age groups, number of visits, or other limitations. Some states have created robust networks of autism therapy providers, while other states have limited choices and significant waitlists.
