In need of residentail treatment for young adult daughter for asperger's and severe anxiety/depression

Can anyone recommend a residential treatment place for a young adult female (18) with mental health issues, severe anxiety, depression? All of the treatment places I have found are for young women with eating disorders or alcohol/substance abuse, which is not the group she needs to be with at all. She's very young compared to her peers but very much in need of mental health services but by someone who… read more

Where to live for BEST autism services (child and adult)

Hello all! I was hoping some of you could share your insight. Our toddler was diagnosed with autism a year ago. We live in TX and don't have much reason to live here (we are not originally from TX, family is scattered throughout the country). I'm trying to research the top 3-4 locations/states to consider for moving for our son's long term future (i.e. therapy/education for his childhood and resources/programs for his adulthood). We want to move somewhere we… read more

How do you deal with young adults that wander?

Last night my 18 year old autistic non verbal son got out and we could not find him. He had crossed a very busy street and went into a liquor store and got a soda and candy. When we called the police people had already called to report someone walking in traffic. I was so terrified. How do people handle this? He will not wear an id bracelet.

Status by "My Team" on mobile app?

@A MyAutismTeam User in the near future will there be the opportunity to sort updates by "My Team" on the mobile app so we can check in on our people? :) MAT is so great, but I find I only have the time to access it via mobile device most of the time since autism parenting keeps my hands full (and my crazy 3 year old) and there are some functions that don't work on mobile - hard to sort by "team", view posted attachments, etc. Thanks so much for all you do!

Your insurance will cover speech services. No need to pay out of pocket. Not local but hope you find what you're looking for

Music therapy in Irvine

Hi,
I am looking for music therapy services for my 4 year old son on Spectrum. He loves music and recites a couple of nursery rhymes by himself when watching on IPad. His language is emerging and would like to try Music therapy. Have heard about Kindermusik in Tustin and McKee Music therapy services in Irvine. McKee Music services fees is exorbitant. They charge $100/hr. Any one has any recommendations? I believe insurance does not cover Music therapy services.
Thanks.

I am a student at Florida Gulf Coast University and I am currently designing a product for my senior class project in Entrepreneurship that helps track wandering or lost children with autism. I was wondering if anyone has any stories or input that could help me with research! I am mainly in search of seeing how often your child runs away or wanders...More specifically asking:
How often they become lost?
What security is in place at home?
What products do you currently… read more
