Autism Resources


New resources available for caregivers of children with autism

Magellan knows that parents of children with autism face many challenges. But you are not alone. Now you can connect with other parents who have children with autism. This can help you build a network of support.

We are proud to offer you access to two new resources:

    This site includes a list of providers and services. The list is based on suggestions from parents and caregivers like you. You can search the list to find the kinds of services you are looking for to help you and your child.
    This site is a social network and support group. It is made just for individuals who care for children with autism.

Magellan Healthcare, Inc. is sharing these social networks as an informational resource for our members. Sharing these resources does not mean that we approve of the content, provider referrals or posts. It also does not mean that we will authorize the services listed on the sites.
