Information regarding new insurance legislation:
The Henry Ford Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) is actively working to become a designated autism service provider for various insurance plans. Negotiations with insurance companies are ongoing and contracts are pending. We anticipate this process will be completed in a few weeks for some insurers, while other may take a few months.
As updated information is available, we will post it on this webpage to keep patients and their families informed. Parents are invited and strongly encouraged to call the CADD Applied Behavioral Analysis Intervention Program at (313) 916-4665 or the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at (313) 916-4609 to be added to the therapy wait list. Once insurance issues are finalized patients will be scheduled for services.
The Henry Ford Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) is a comprehensive center committed to improving the lives of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and developmental disabilities. We provide complete support and treatment options for children from birth through adolescence. Recently, we have been recognized by the State of Michigan as an approved Center of Excellence for reimbursable treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
At CADD, you have access to diagnostic, intervention and support services that meet your child's unique developmental and medical needs. Our multi-disciplinary diagnostic team of experts work together to provide the best assessment and intervention options for your child. This team includes:
- Developmental Pediatrician
- Pediatric Neurologist
- Pediatric Neuropsychologist
- Social Worker/Case Manager
- Speech-Language Pathologist
How do I get started?
To begin the process, contact our CADD specialists to schedule an initial phone interview. During this call, a CADD intake coordinator will gather information about your child and, with you, determine the appropriate next step. At this time, we strongly encourage each family to contact their insurance company to understand coverage.
If diagnosis is the next step, a diagnostic session is scheduled where our team will evaluate your child through parent interviews, direct observations, and diagnostic tools. A follow-up feedback session will provide each family with reports based on evaluation, diagnosis and recommendations for services.
