Helping students with Aspergers prepare for university life

Students with autism  get cooking instruction at Birmingham City University

The number of autistic students going to university has soared in recent years, growing by more than 200% in five years – and this figure does not include students who haven't disclosed their disability. Academics believe the rise is driven by greater awareness of autism and better opportunities for those who have the condition to reach their potential at school.

Medicaid and CHIP FAQs: Services to Address Autism September 2014

On July 7, 2014, CMCS issued an Informational Bulletin (CIB) (see http://www.medicaid.gov/Federal-Policy-Guidance/Downloads/CIB-07-07-14.pdf) to provide information on approaches available under Medicaid for providing services to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this CIB, CMS discussed the various authorities under which services to address ASD could be reimbursed including section 1905(a) of the Social Security Act (the Act). Services to address ASD can be covered under three benefit categories: Section 1905(a) (6) Other Licensed Practitioner (OLP), section 1905(a) (13) Preventive Services, and section 1905(a) (11) Therapies.
The informational bulletin also reviewed state obligations under section 1905(a)(4)(B) of the Act, the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) benefit, where states must cover all medically necessary services for children, including services to address ASD.
