PLEASE HELP! Arizona To Repeal Autism Insurance Therapy Coverage

Dear Friends, I need your help today with an urgent matter. As you may know, a few years ago, the State of Arizona passed a Bill that approved Insurance coverage for the behavioral treatment of Autism. This bill was one of the first passed and it has already changed the lives of numerous families and children. Today, the Arizona House of Reps repealed the Bill. Of course this came as a great shock to our families and we are very concerned that it will also produce a precedent for other States who have or are in the process of passing similar insurance bills.

CARD eLearning: An opportunity for Caregivers of Children with Autism

Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and other CARD research and development staff have conducted preliminary research on CARD eLearning that suggested it may be an effective tool for training behavioral therapists. The study evaluated the effectiveness of eLearning as compared to traditional lecture-style instruction in training newly hired therapists. Knowledge of ABA significantly increased for both groups, with the traditional training group scoring slightly higher than the eLearning group.
