Autism insurance. Early childhood developmental disorders insurance. What does that mean? As a growing number of states have legislated private insurance and Medicaid to pay for families that have a diagnosis of autism or early childhood disorders therapies, what do you think is happening? I spoke to Vermont Special Needs Attorney Claudia Pringles, and the author of New Hampshire's Connor's Law, Kirsten Murphy, on what the reality is right now for access to paid providers for children in states that have passed these laws. Some tips to help families through the insurance maze.
