Finding affordable counseling for autism and assessment options in any city can be a challenge but we are hoping we can make this a bit easier for you with some well-researched options in Austin. This is a comprehensive guide that was put together in order to help you find an affordable and good choice that suits your needs.

In Network and Out of Network: First off, if you have insurance, I strongly suggest you check your benefits to see what your in and out of network options are. In-network options are providers who have a contracted rate with insurance companies and most often this is lower than the cash pay rate. The issue with this tends to be that insurance companies squeeze therapists on the reimbursement rates and frequently therapists will leave their panel or greatly limit the number of insurance clients they take. This is a frequent point of frustration for people. Out of network allows you to see whomever you would like and you pay their full rate but then your insurance will kick in once you have met your deductible.

One quick note for those looking for affordable autism counseling:

  • Depending on the severity of the issue, it may take some time to treat it. This may mean a few months of coming weekly or it may take longer. Be prepared for this as counseling isn’t something where a therapist comes in and waves a magic wand.
