Our very own Sarah Cho, Managing Supervisor, will be on KSEE 24 today between 11:00 am to 12:00 pm to discuss our insurance workshop that will be on January 19th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm. She will be going over “Is My Child’s Autism Treatment Funded by Insurance Providers?” This is a free, 2 hour workshop for parents of children with autism. The free workshop will address current California insurance funding issues related to autism treatments. Autism insurance reform laws have been enacted by 23 states. California is one of nine states with autism insurance reform bills pending introduction or endorsement.
Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder that is marked by the presence of impaired social interaction and communication in addition to a restricted repertoire of activities and interests. According to the Center for Disease Control Prevention, one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism in America, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. For those of you, who are interested and unable to watch, please attend our insurance workshop on the 19th located at 4928 E. Clinton Way, Suite 105, Fresno, CA 93727 at 6:30 pm.
