The objective of this campaign is to provide a resource guide free of charge to any parent in Colorado explaining the funding systems, the legislative issues, school problem solvers and more.
Lakewood, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2013 -- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects 1 out of 88 children in the United States. In Colorado, it affects 1 out of 85 children. According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Autism Spectrum Disorder will continue to rise in prevalence creating a public health concern for all Coloradans. Children on the spectrum need intensive, quality services for the many areas of development that are affected by the disorder. Many times, parents find themselves overwhelmed with the overpowering number of treatments and the expense of those treatments. For many families that live in rural communities, it is often difficult to find services in their area.
This manual will be a comprehensive guide in helping direct Colorado parents in deciding what therapies would be best for their children. It will also provide Colorado families with the latest information regarding regulations on Medicaid waivers such as the CES and Autism Waiver, insurance, and suggestions for low cost interventions parents can try if they need ideas on what to do. They will navigate through the changes in Health Care policy and give parents an easy to read manual to use when advocating for their children. Guides will be delivered to all Colorado libraries printed in both Spanish and English and be available online for download at no cost. A mirror website will also be connected to the printed guide with more up-to-date information as well as lists of providers, resources, ongoing events, and more.
Both Ally and Germaine work for Consultants for Children Inc. in Denver, Colorado. The manual will only contain information to help families navigate the autism world in Colorado. This manual will not be promoting the company in any shape or form. All information will be evidence-based with no encouragement of one type of therapy over another. The basis of this manual is to share the latest information about funding for autism in Colorado. Ally and Germaine also would like to share the many options that Colorado residents have in treatment with families all over the state. They believe that knowledge is power!
This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: October 01, 2013 - November 18, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
