1. Contact Insurance: While it may not be the first thing that comes to mind, your insurance policy will play a critical role in the resources you are able to access for your child. We would highly recommend that you seek out information from your insurance provider on what your policy covers and what your financial responsibility may look like. Due to the long wait list, you may also want to sign up for Medicaid Waivers in case you may want to access those services in the future
2. Research Providers: Most likely, a variety of different therapies may be recommended for your child. Even if you are hesitant to immediately begin therapy with your young child, the saying, “the earlier the better” is very true in regard to best possible outcomes for your child! Find the right fit for your family and your child.
