I am curious, if your child has an ASD, what services do you pay for? How old is your DC?
I ask because I see so many referances to paying for services. Maybe I am just lucky, but I haven't had to pay a single penny for my son's services. He was first evaluated my early intervention when he just after his second birthday. He qualified for services and the county sent a special instuction teacher, OT and ST to our home weekly plus a enrolled him in a weekly playgroup where they actually paid me to transport him. Early Intervention also paid for our evaluation with the pedi specialist. When he turned 3, he transitioned to the preschool for services. He is bussed to preschool 5 days a week where he recieves all his therapies. Again, I don't pay a penny. It is all funded by the state and county, and ran by the school district.
