I know …anyone with an autistic child (and funding their therapy) will not be surprised but now there is a report that agrees with this. I really think that people that aren’t aware of the detail, don’t really understand how little is funded by the government. I know I was having a discussion with a friend the other day about going to the Medicare office with her bills. She goes monthly. I go quarterly because the amount of paperwork required to get the little I can get back means that doing it more frequently than monthly would test (my already tested) sanity. When for a typically person all you need to do is just take your doctors bills. It really is a different world.
I was reminder reading today when I was reading an interesting post on the Australian Autism Handbook today called Autism is Expensive. An excellent post on a new report Post-diagnosis support for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, their families and carers. After reading the post I knew I had to do 2 things .. download the report for later reading and spread the word about it.
