State and Federal Resources

There are many state and federal programs that are designed to assist individuals with developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders. There are cash benefits from programs like Supplemental Security Income (SSI), tax savings plans like the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, and state programs like the Medicaid Waiver. Other governmental and nonprofit agencies have compiled helpful descriptions of these various programs and we are happy to recommend them, below.

For help with SSI and other programs administered by the Social Security Administration, visit their very helpful page at
