As Acorn continues to grow across the United States, Michigan remains one of the regions where we have the largest footprint, allowing us to make the greatest impact. From our BCBAs to Clinical Directors, our qualified staff live and work in Michigan, serving families who are living and working in Michigan, too.
In 2007, Michigan was shown to have the 5th highest rate of autism compared to other US states, demonstrating the need for families and children to have applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy resources available nearby.
In 2012, autism insurance reform legislation in Michigan went into effect mandating that for-profit, commercial, HMO, and non-profit health insurance companies regulated by the state provide an autism benefit to its insured members, covering services related to the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) through 18 years of age. That same year, Acorn Health opened its first Michigan center in Traverse City, and also began providing in-home services to the surrounding areas.
