As I'm diging to solve this insurance problem, I called the waiver who manages the mental health and developmental disability of medicaid and other state funds. I explained the situation to the lady on the phone and her first questions were about V's diagnosis. To get an idea if he would qualify for their help once his loses his insurance. Si I name what I was told: anxiety, speech delay, sensory processing disorder (SPD) and Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). She says it sounds like V would qualify but she pulled out his information on her computer and she read that V has the Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) diagnosis, which falls under Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Why on earth I am not aware that V has this diagnosis??? It's the weekend and I have a million question: who gave him the diagnosis? Does he still need to be evaluated by the university/research program? If he has the diagnosis already, maybe he could benefit from their services right away. How about the impact on the school?? I find it really odd to learn this kind of info by accident. It's like everyone has been tip-toeing around it but it is already written black on white somewhere. How do I find out who gave him the diagnosis? I wonder if his current social worker can find out. Have you ever heard of such an absurde situation?
