Can anyone give use some resources for this? They were also told to apply for SSI for him, but their son is only 14. Is this so he can get into the Medicaid/medicare system? Please let me know your thoughts and I will pass them on to the family.
I need an autism diagnosis to replace his current diagnosis of non-specific spectrum disorder. This so we can get proper services for him at school and proper support therapy outside of school. I am also exploring the notion of a more appropriate school setting with structures in place to help him. Right now the school is cobbling together support for him and I am not sure they can really manage.
