Hi it's me. The one who's son is doing amazing in ABA. Too bad DH just had a 6 month review and may need a new job at the end of the year. What are the chances he will find one that covers ABA... Feeling sort of out of it, crying, might throw up... I just don't get it.. This is what we've fought so hard for? 9 months of therapy?

I'm sorry :( We've been fighting for almost 5 months to receive therapy. There is always a dark cloud it seems.

Big hugs mama!!!  Is he on Medicaid?  New ruling this week (last week?) requires ABA services available for ASd, but need Medicaid at moment.  I'll try to find the link I posted about it.  When will you know if he has to change jobs?  Are they closing or does he just want a different one?

I will have to check if he is still on it. We haven't used it as of yet because of private insurance. Find that for me if you can please :)

He isn't a good fit for the job. His boss said he has til the end of the year and he will help him find a new job.

Hope he finds a job that covers ABA. I know that you are seeing great results with it.

 Sorry you're going through that. Just breathe and take it a day at a time. Life will work itself out. It always does eventually. Hopefully you will be able to cover it like the other poster said. If not maybe there are grants?? ((hugs))

I'm on iPad, not computer so not sure if the link will go clicky.  If it doesn't work for you I will try again on my computer.  This is the post I did that has the link to services clicky in the first reply.  Hope it helps.  If he has Medicaid, you should have your ABA.  Our private ins does not pay for it at all, it is strictly billed through Medicaid.
