Nevada’s Autism Treatment Assistance Program (ATAP) was created to assist parents and caregivers with the expensive cost of providing Autism-specific treatments to their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ATAP is a statewide program that provides temporary assistance and funding to pay for evidenced-based treatment for children on the Autism Spectrum, who are under the age of 20 and are diagnosed as a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder by a physician, psychologist, child/adolescent psychiatrist, pediatric neurologist, or other qualified professional. A diagnosis from a multidisciplinary team is acceptable when accompanied by an appropriate assessment report.
ATAP provides a monthly allotment to for on-going treatment development, supervision and a limited amount of weekly intervention hours based upon a child’s individual treatment plan, age, and income.
