Additional Information:

More and more people are losing their jobs and health insurance. There are thousands of community members on waiting lists for services which they cannot obtain due to lack of financial resources and/or health insurance. We want to be able to provide our disability and rehab services to any child or adult in need without regard for their ability to afford the services. It is important that we raise awareness for the increasing need, particularly for children with autism. The earlier they receive the treatment they need, the more on-going services they receive, the better their developmental outcomes. You can be a part of making this possible for them.
