How Contacting Your Legislator can Help Get Children the Services They Need – Take Action Today!

Waitlists. No child should ever be put on a waitlist for services they desperately need.

Please help us help you and your child!

As the largest of a limited number of Medicaid based Applied Behavioral Analysis or ABA providers in South Dakota, we are heavily reliant on state funding to provide ABA services to your family. The lack of state funding, combined with increases in autism diagnosis across the state have created a perfect storm of demand that exceeds supply, resulting in a waitlist that only continues to grow.

Being told your child has autism is scary enough, but being told you can’t get the help your child needs for several months or longer is even worse.

You have the power to help us do this, not only for your child, but for all South Dakota children diagnosed with autism. However, there are more children and adults sitting on other waitlists as well. Children, waiting to get into our residential, Intermediate Care Facility, program and adults with developmental disabilities who need residential assistance. It’s time to act now!

Simply look below for the waitlist you’re impacted by.
