The Autism Coalition of Nevada has created a comprehensive statewide resource guide called ACON's 'Nevada Autism Provider & Services Directory'. Our focus is to provide our communities with 'Evidence Based' services and providers in your area.


Please click on our section called 'ACON Directory' and then double click the PDF Icon and the Directory will open in an easily readable and printable file. Our hope is that this document will be a source of great service to you and your family. *Please Note that this Directory is not intended to treat, cure or provide specific answers to any medical, neurologic, health or other disease, issue or illness.

This Directory will be updated only one time per year. If you have a request for a change to the Directory or would like to add a service or provider to this list, please contact an ACON member and ask to have your idea added to the (ANNUAL UPDATE LIST). Have patience as this Directory requires great amounts of research and verification and is updated by an ACON member at their discretion.


Feel free to contact an experienced ACON Representative today by clicking on our JOIN ACON page or calling the number listed. You will find our direct phone number, address, e-mail and a listing of the members of our Board of Directors. Some parents and caregivers feel best when they can discuss concerns with a live person and we are here to assist you. Please feel free to contact an ACON Representative today.


NEVADA ATAP - Autism Treatment Assistance Program

Nevada’s Autism Treatment Assistance Program (ATAP) was created to assist parents and caregivers with the expensive cost of providing Autism-specific treatments to their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ATAP is a statewide program that provides temporary assistance and funding to pay for evidenced-based treatment for children on the Autism Spectrum, who are under the age of 20 and are diagnosed as a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder by a physician, psychologist, child/adolescent psychiatrist, pediatric neurologist, or other qualified professional. A diagnosis from a multidisciplinary team is acceptable when accompanied by an appropriate assessment report. 

ATAP provides a monthly allotment to providers for on-going treatment development, supervision and a limited amount of weekly intervention hours based upon a child’s individual treatment plan, age, and income.  ATAP only funds treatments which have been proven by research to be evidence-based, including Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), Verbal Behavioral (VB), and Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) to increase useful behaviors and reduce those that may be harmful or that interfere with learning, to bring about meaningful behavior change. Covered services include program training; development and supervision; daily intervention hours; and essential tools, supplies or equipment. ATAP may also fund Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy when other resources do not provide coverage.
