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. We 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. Autism will not be leaving soon, we must protect our children by providing them the best services as possible. Please help us spread this manual to help families in Colorado!
