Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects a wide range of essential human behaviors such as social interaction, communication, imagination and relationships. Identifying health coverage, access to care, and eligibility for various services can be difficult to navigate for many families who are caring for individuals with ASD. In this webinar, presenters from the Defense Health Agency (DHA) will provide an overview of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), in addition to advice for service providers and military families on how best to assist beneficiaries under the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD). ACD provides supplemental services to qualifying dependents of active duty service members, retirees and certain National Guard and Reserve members. This session will also provide detailed information covering the cost of ACD and identifying points of contact for specific TRICARE regions.
