Autism Coverage

May 2nd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Parents will soon be able to have their autistic childrens therapy covered by their insurance policy. The state legislature is mandating that insurance companies provide up to t$36 thousand dollars of therapy for a child each year, with maximum payments of two hundred thousand dollars. Victoria Zepp is the mother of an autistic son and says early therapy can make all the difference in the world.

With autism, autism is one of the very few disabilities where if you catch these children within a certain window, like three to four to five, you can actually reverse many of the causes of Autism that cause these children not to be able to be mainstream, that theyre not able to be melded into society, Zepp said. But by hitting them at a very early age with advanced therapy, with advanced behavioral therapy, youre able to make such difference in the lives of these children, their families, their communities.

An estimated one in every 150 children is autistic
