Insurance for Autism Services
April is National Autism Awareness Month! The sentiment behind this is to educate and encourage people to support the cause and raise awareness of an illness that has affected 1 in 88 children with no current cure (Autism Speaks).
According to the Autism Services Group, “More than 30,000 children are diagnosed with autism in the U.S. every year, more than the number diagnosed with childhood diabetes, cancer, and AIDS – combined.”
By bringing awareness to society and organizations, the hope is to promote early detection, intervention and research toward a cure. For the many people living with autism, there are a variety of specialized programs specifically designed to provide additional daily support.
These services may include:
- Residential Habilitation
- After School and Educational Programs
- Adult Day Services
- In-Home Clinical Support
- Respite Care
- Family Education, Counseling and Training Services
- Speech Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Behavioral Health
- Vocational Rehabilitation Services
- Pharmacy Care
Within AFC’s Human & Social Services Property & Casualty Insurance Program – Humanity Plus – we insure a variety of these services that support people with autism. For more information on insurance for autism services, contact us at 877-456-5323 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
