FAQ 10 - Thoughts on puzzle pieces, language and therapies

We know that there is a lot of discussion - and controversy - in the autism community regarding use of the puzzle piece, whether identify-first or person-first language should be used and whether or not ABA is an acceptable therapy for example. We at Spectrum Linx believe that everyone has  a right to their own opinion. You will find that some of our teachers and coaches may use identity-first language while others may use person-first. We believe that choosing a particular therapy for a child is a very personal experience. Our goal is to provide information to help parents make informed-decisions. 

What we ask of you is to be respectful of others on our site and in our classes. We will not tolerate bullying and reserve the right to ban anyone from our site and/or classes at anytime due to disrespectful and hateful behavior toward others.

FAQ 11 - Are classes or coaching covered by insurance?

We know how much it costs to raise a child on the spectrum but at this time, Spectrum Linx does not accept insurance or other types of group or governmental payments. We will gladly provide you a receipt of services if that is helpful!
