In other words, they are sold out for a cheap price, at the expense of their child(ren)’ s education. We have attended several meetings in which attorneys, advocates, psychologists, CEDARR representatives, counselors and so forth, who either could have been considered invisible or in opposition with the parents. Recently, it came to our attention that several satellite centers of Hasbro Hospital will not provide rehabilitation services for children with autism if the child exhibits any form of aggressive behaviors.

Professionals are sought in the following areas, but not limited to- Attorneys, Advocates, BCBA-Behavioral Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists, Psychologists, Psychiatrist, Teachers, HBTS/PASS workers, Mental Health Counselors, and Service Dog Trainers….
