The Coalition brings together the collective strength of like-minded practitioner organizations coming together to improve the landscape of private and public reimbursable insurance services for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), including applied behavior analysis (ABA), to those served in the State of Illinois. Working alongside our Regional Response Partners including advocacy organizations and families, the Coalition receives feedback and data from around the state.
Building Parity, Access & Capacity!
Ensure access to prescribed treatments for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities and mental health disorders including applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech therapy and other treatment modalities.
Be a resource for health insurance and public systems for autism treatments to consumers, employers, insurance carriers, providers, government, advocates, and educators.
Provide educational training to parents and stakeholders about accessing ABA and other treatments through insurance and public systems.
Collect data from individuals of all ages and all stakeholders of successes and challenges accessing prescribed treatments.
Impact public policy decisions in state regulations, laws, and funding that support building service capacity to meet the autism community needs.
The Coalition Partners (behavioral health organizations and individual practitioners) have pooled funds together to hire Root Consulting, LLC to implement goals set by the Coalition and manage the Coalition. The Coalition is not a formalized association or legal entity.
