Hi chyanne, welcome to the board! In the US, I believe that a lot of the services are provided through IEPs with the school districts. You can also receive services with early intervention before they get into school. They might not focus as much on the diagnosis but areas where your child might need additional services. Some of the other members should be chiming in soon with their experiences, I look forward to getting to know you better :)
