Autism Spectrum Assistance Program (ASAP)
NDAD has a program to help families cope with service gaps for children and adults with an autism spectrum disorder. Autism Spectrum Assistance Program (ASAP) may assist with medical travel expenses and respite services when no other payment option is available for families through local, state or federal programs.
Qualifying individuals receive gas cards for out-of-town medical travel for appointments, including occupational, physical, speech/language and behavioral therapies, and psychiatric appointments.
NDAD also may assist with up to eight hours per week of respite care expenses.
"We are excited to bring ASAP to North Dakota families," said Kim Zeeb, NDAD's client services representative in Fargo. "We hope that this program will fill some gaps in services for people with autism."
North Dakotans and individuals living in direct bordering state communities are encouraged to apply. They must complete an application and qualify based on NDAD guidelines.
