Re: Kentucky or Indiana? Need advice!
Hi Janice, thanks for taking the time to reply. I am so confused by the information out there. It seems like the more I search, the more double talk I read. I emailed someone at an Indiana organization today and this is the response I got:
I'm sorry to have to say it, but overall Indiana schools do a VERY bad job with kids with autism -- in fact, families here struggle to get services for their loved ones with autism in every area -- education, health care, employment...I would strongly recommend against moving here unless you absolutely have no choice.
Very discouraging to say the least. Then I read that KY has passed a bill mandating KY insurance companies to pay up to $500 a month in services for autism (including ABA). Of course, if that $500 a month includes speech and OT as well as ABA, then $500 is a drop in the bucket. Is the rest out of pocket? Ugh. Sorry, venting out of sheer frustration.
