Medical Law and Ethics Class Essay

by ariel

Hello, I am doing an essay on why SPD isn't its own diagnosis yet and why it should be. How advocates and parents have to fight with insurance companies to get help paying for OT and things, especially if a child has just been diagnosed with SPD and nothing else.

Can you point me in the right direction for some information about the laws people have to battle using or against when trying to get their kids' help. Such as for paying for OT or getting a school plan thing (504/IEP) whatever its called? I chose this topic because it is close to my heart, my nephew has SPD (just SPD) and he is going to be 5, but we can't get him OT help because we can't afford it.
