Houston

Hi everyone
We are having to relocate once again, and I wanted to see if anyone has had any luck with private schools in the Houston Texas area. Is there a grant or some sort of a program that helps cover private school fees? Does Medicaid cover ABA? My son is 6 years old and needs a lot of assistance. Trying to find the right fit for him.

Intensive ABA program in/around Boston,MA

Hi all. I’m based in the UK but have family in Boston MA and I’ll like to know if there are any multidisciplinary programs with intensive ABA, speech and language and OT summer programs I can enrol my son in?

He also has a hard time… read more

Group home protocol question.

If you do not have guardianship of your adult autistic, is it true that group homes have to basically honor the autistic adult's wishes when it comes to taking their meds and showering and they are not obligated to ensure that the adult in fact takes his meds and showers?

Who homeschools their child? Can you please tell me something positive about homeschooling?

I’m seriously contemplating homeschooling my 10 year old daughter- every summer my daughter has to “recover” from school. But by November we have serious regression and delays in milestones which were achieved previously. She always is bullied and isolated as well- September and October are great but I can see the sensory overload build-

I’ve never been able to get schools to listen to what she needs so it’s a full time… read more
