ACN evaluated my grandson for autism. We had to wait 6 months for the evaluation, but I understand they have it down to a 3 month wait now. It was WELL worth it!! The evaluation was very thorough, his parents got results the same day (with a formal written report coming about a month later) We have carried out all the recommendations they gave, and my grandson is doing very well. They worked with his insurance company, and had a very generous sliding scale fee for our deductable. They were very patient with our payment schedule, allowing us as much time as we needed to pay the balance. All the Staff members are patient, kind, professional and are very well educated. Their Caregiver Seminars are wonderful!! Very small groups, with subject matters very appropriate to our needs. We have attended on a monthly basis. Very pleased with this facility and the services they offer.
