Innovative Strategies for Caregivers of An Individual With Special Needs

According to the CDC, 1 in 6 children (or 17%) are diagnosed with a developmental disability such as autism or ADD/ADHD. Prevalence of autism alone has increased 20X in the past decade and adults with autism entering the workforce is now the fastest growing minority population in the United States. Behavioral therapy coverage is complex and confusing and providers are extremely scarce with increasingly slim networks creating a real gap in care. Caregivers of a loved one with special needs are one of the under served populations in benefits today. Thankfully there is hope. Learn more about how some of the most progressive Fortune 1,000 employers are leveraging innovative approaches and technology to deliver much needed support to employees who are caregivers of a loved one with a developmental disability.
