We will provide financial grants to parents to help offset the cost of initial screening and diagnosis for autism for high deductible plans where the parents can't afford to meet their deductible. Research shows that the cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 2/3 with early diagnosis and intervention with the goal being before age three. If early interventions are not done, it is estimated that the cost of education for a child on the autism spectrum is an additional $8600 per year over the average $12,000 a year for a neurotypical child. Because of this it is truly important that young children on the spectrum are diagnosed as early as possible.
