In brief: Hard to say

Depends on what and how many instruments the doctor use and how many hours the insurance company is willing to reimburse.
Ranged from 4 to 12 hours and these include doctor's report writing time.

In brief: Sadly,

The average wait-time in the us is 9 months.
Call the autism center at kennedy/kreiger institute in baltimore. Every clinic tries their best to prioritize children under 3 & those without diagnoses & services.
