'AS YOU ARE' virtual autism dx clinics now in all 50 states

Mar 8, 2024, ABC7 Chicago: Virtual autism clinic 'As You Are' now available in Illinois, Indiana

News clip:


Anchor: One in 36 kids have been identified to have autism.


Now, 10 percent of all children around the country need an evaluation to be diagnosed with autism.


On top of that, it could take for a parent or a guardian to get an autism evaluation.


The state of Illinois recently launched a clinic which has a mission to curb the current wait time for folks.  . . .


Kayla Wagner, CEO As You Are: As You Are is a virtual clinic. I like to call it a clinic in the sky. It’s available to anyone anywhere. The purpose of this is to provide a diagnostic evaluation in the comfort of the child’s own home. . . .


Wagner explained that the current wait time for an evaluation is over two years currently.


We don’t have a waitlist. That’s the beauty of Telehealth. Everything we do is completely virtual.


So a parent can go to AsYouAre.com, schedule an appointment and meet with a physician right in the comfort of your own home. . . .


We can see a parent if they are noticing signs or symptoms. . .


It’s so important for a child to receive an early diagnosis, so we wanted to create accessibility for everyone. . . . 


It starts with the 30 minute appointment with a physician. That’s the most amazing part. . . .


Illinois was our last final state. So we’re in all 50 states now. We’re available nationwide.  . . .


Diagnosis is the most important thing in any pediatric health care condition. You need the diagnosis first before you can start an intervention plan. . . .


We use health insurance just like going to any doctor’s appointment.
