Taking care of a child diagnosed with autism can be expensive. The doctor visits, therapy sessions, and early interventions can add up and put a toll on the family. There is government help to assist with the cost of these interventions. Medicaid can also alleviate some of the financial burdens placed on families. Some private as well as non-profit agencies may also offer scholarships to help cover the costs of care. Check into what is available in your own area to see what options are yours.
