Therapy for children with Autism can be expensive but, their are resources to help cover costs. Private insurance companies like, Aetna or BCBS, as well as state insurance programs, including Medicaid, cover ABA therapy services and may cover, or partially cover Speech therapy, OT or PT. Less traditional therapies like Music therapy, Equestrian therapy, or Yoga are often not covered by insurance even though research suggests these therapy options may be beneficial, especially when combined with traditional therapy.
Below is a list of programs providing grants or scholarships to assist in covering the cost of diagnosis, treatment, and other medical expenses. Eligibility for funding typically requires the applicant to upload proof of Autism diagnosis and some may request proof of income to verify financial need.
