Episode 4 - Autism and Your Family Finances
Families living with Autism will tell you: there are a lot of great therapies out there to help your child grow, develop, and overcome challenges.
They'll also tell you that therapy is expensive and that government funding -- while helpful -- doesn't go far enough in covering the costs.
How can families balance their general household finances with their Autism-related expenses in a way that lets everyone eat out at a restaurant occasionally?
Katie speaks with Frank Danielson, one of the parents on our Autism Parents Roundtable, who is also a senior financial planner at Assante Wealth Management, to get some tips.
