Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Last month, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed legislation expanding autism insurance benefits. The new law eliminates the age 9 cap for services for state regulated health plans, but limits ABA benefits to $36,000 a year for individuals affected by autism ages 10 and above. Set to take effect September 2013, Children must be medically diagnosed by age 10 to receive coverage.
With this new legislation the greater autism community has a road map to a positive future. Teach Me LLC in Dallas, Texas is leading the way in serving children, adolescence and adults on the autism spectrum. Their comprehensive treatment plans are designed on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behavior (VB) and incorporates speech goals into every day therapy.
