Autism wait lists called untenable
Parents of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders say services available are failing to keep up with a mounting demand, and that government needs to step up its efforts to recruit therapists.

The thing is with the long waiting times is these therapists are generally not specific to those with autism. They also have clients who need O.T and S.T who do not have autism, but still are in need of the services. There's also a number of different doctors who can diagnose autism.
As for bridging the gap between health and community services and our education system, they all serve different purposes, and funded differently. Bridging health and the educational system is only asking for trouble. Also the issue is all states function differently and there is no one standard of any state. So depending on where you live, depends on what is available (mostly income based as well) and how long the waiting times are. and what services a child will obtain in school.
