Are there programs for autistic children without insurance?
I am concerned that my child may have asd but I don't have insurance. Are there any programs out there that will help with the costs of screening and possibly treatment? I don't qualify for state insurance programs, and my job doesn't offer health insurance, and I can't afford private insurance, and my son is 4 so he doesn't qualify for First Steps. ANY help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
