Hi--we have Oxford Healthcare (New York). For nearly an entire year, we have gotten the complete run-around--like in the Matt Damon movie (The Rainmaker)--deny all claims. This is for specifically approved ABA therapy, etc. They claim to have "lost files," given us erroneous fax numbers, told us we were past the claim date (which of course was because they "lost" the file," and other issues. We are considering hiring an attorney to sort this out--even though it's… read more

Hi,

i am new here. My son, 3 years old, was recently diagnosed with ASD. We want to start ABA for him, but Trumpet and ACES have a waiting list of 2 months.

You may want to work with your 11 yr old in a practice activity in buttoning shirts and pants. My son eventually overcame this in time. I was so happy and so was he.

Hi guys,

I'm seeking opinions on retirement locations for parents with adult children. I'll retire in another decade, but want to lay the groundwork for a smooth transition. I anticipate my adult son will live with us, so I'm looking for areas with the best services. My current location is pretty decent in terms of services, but it's too costly for retirees. All info is much appreciated!

Thanks.
