I live in Florida and we have the same services through Medicaid. I would search through different agencies like ARC, United Cerebral Palsy, Jewish Community Services for other programs. Many of these programs have the same as what OPWDD offers.
Im in Arizona and we are going through the process right now and we got approved for long term care, although we have private insurance here all kids disgnosed with autism are approved so we get respite and habilitation. I am waiting for the support coordinator to call to go over he ins and outs of this, will let you know if I find out in the next day or two.
