Our latest white paper is now available! “Expand Insurance Coverage of the PLAY Project to Support Developmental and Relationship-based Treatment of Young Ohioans with ASD” examines how we treat children with autism at OhioGuidestone, and why we think the PLAY Project is so important. At OhioGuidestone, we recognize a variety of options exist for the treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Those include oft-used interventions such as applied behavior analysis (ABA). However, we advocate for the treatment of children presenting mild to moderate symptoms using models that incorporate parents and focus on improving social interaction skills, not just reformatting behavior. In our paper, we suggest that the PLAY Project be initially considered as the primary treatment for children 0-8 years old diagnosed with autism who do not demonstrate significantly impaired social interactions. We also advocate for its inclusion in expanded insurance coverage by Ohio providers, including Medicaid. Our white papers communicate research, theories, and our position on particular topics. They connect directly to our mission and vision, with the intent to educate, inform, and influence policy. To read other white papers we’ve published, click here.
