Parent Resources

For any parents out there who need additional help finding resources, this page is for you.


Insurance coverage

Here is a link to an explanation of the differences between self-funded and fully-funded insurance plans. It comes from Wisconsin and looks like it was made for a specific employer, but generally it is helpful. 


For those seeking a new plan for insurance, here is a link to the Health Insurance Exchange for Connecticut.


Community Resources

Autism Speaks is a great resource for parents in Connecticut. 


ASRC provides helpful resources on their website as well. 


Community Autism Socials at Yale – Project CASY

Project CASY is a university-organized community of individuals living with autism and the families, friends, and professionals involved in their lives.  Project CASY uses a collaborative approach, where community members can network online and meet together in person to share their thoughts and experiences. All in-person meetings are facilitated by dedicated faculty and staff of the Yale Child Study Center.
