Wow what a big move! Out of curiosity how did you find out the services were better at you new local?? My son has a recent Aspergers identification , he's 13, and I wouldn't know what services to look for in other state. I don't think we'd consider moving though. It's very brave of you. We pay a lot out of pocket but he does get things through the school. It was the school that identified him.

What a lot of changes you and your family have gone through! I hope that you know what fabulous parents you and your husband are to do what you've done for your son. And your other children too, for their brother. I wish you all the best in your new home. It sounds like culture shock for you, such a change in geography and with money being tight too. I understand why you are feeling down. I would feel that way too.
Hang in there and know that you are one courageous woman!

I researched ALOT on the internet. I LOVE Autism Speaks - it has provided me with the most info on each state. PA allows children (regardless of parents' income) the right to State Medical Assistance for their ASD. They just passed a law in PA (to begin July, 2009) that private ins. will be required to cover ASDs for kids in the state of PA up to $36,000 (I believe this is the correct amount) annually. Anything above and beyond that will be covered by the state. And of course, those not insured will still have access to the Medical Assistance for their needs. Also, they have Wraparound services in PA - my son will have access to a TSS (Therapeutic Support Specialist - a trained person who will follow him in different social situations to help him to transition and to learn to how to act appropriately in different situations: school, home, soccer practice..) and mobile psychology. His psych visits are covered as are any therapies. In Ohio, our ins. did not cover ANYTHING related to the ASD and weren't required to do so. We weren't eligible for medical assistance because we made too much money. Brian's therapies and doctor's visits became so much that we could not afford to give him all of the therapies he needed. He suffered for 2 years because he had no consistent services. My husband looked into a job in PA based on the services they provide ASD kiddos. After 2 years of his getting no support in school and none of the therapies he needed, we said, "enough is enough" and decided it was time to be more aggressive. Good luck to you!! Aspie kids are special kids with unique talents. They are so intelligent and have such a rewarding future if we are able to help them overcome some of the social issues. Feel free to contact me at any time.
