Mission Possible

This is the story of Maddy and her amazing story of progress through autism with the help of her dedicated and loving parents and Skills®, an online autism treatment program. Maddy wasn’t fortunate enough to live anywhere near a CARD treatment center, so her family enlisted the help of Skills – an online program for the treatment of autism. Skills allowed Maddy to benefit from access to a world-class web-based system for designing and managing a professional-quality autism treatment plan with the added benefit of live support via webchat or the Skills online support center. Watch this video, and see for yourself firsthand how Skills made a difference in Maddy’s life.

Challenging Week for California’s Autism Community

Brown

California’s autism community suffered major setbacks last week in its efforts to gain access to autism treatment for all Californians. In a last-minute change, Governor Brown and the Legislature struck a budget deal for Medi-Cal funding which fell short of a previous attempt by Assemblymember John Perez (D-Los Angeles) and Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) that would have given Medi-Cal beneficiaries the same benefits as the essential health benefits in California’s health exchange. As a result, Medi-Cal enrollees will not have coverage for autism treatment services, better known as applied behavior analysis (ABA). While some Medi-Cal enrollees will have access to ABA through California’s regional centers, many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) do not meet the regional centers’ more stringent criteria.
