An evening for parents and families of children with autism. We’re here to support you in learning how to:

Get a diagnosis (+ local resources for diagnosis)
Obtain a referral for ABA therapy (applied behavior analysis)
Fund ABA services
Navigate insurance 
Appeal a denial for coverage
Work with your child’s school

You’ll also gain important information about:

Legal mandates for autism treatment and ABA therapy
Your rights as a parent in the educational system
State and local trends

Q&A to follow the presentation.

You’ll leave with a set of tools, information, and resources you can start using immediately to advocate for the education and treatment your child needs. We know it isn’t easy, but our goal is to support you in feeling ready to “fight the good fight” while advocating for your child.

* Free child care available. Space is limited and we reserve the right to limit the number of children due to responsible ratios. You must reserve a space for your child in advance so we can ensure appropriate coverage. Please email eileen@allbettertogether.com to reserve a space.
