CNY Autism Consulting Helping Those on the Autism Spectrum Live Successful Lives Paul Meier  315-559-8242 Rates I can’t accept insurance because I am not a doctor or social worker.  However, I want to be as affordable as possible for as many people as possible.  Even though I have been advised not to publicize rates, I want to do so for the sake of openness and transparency. My base rate is $50 for an hour session.  If needed, a sliding scale can be considered off the base rate. When I travel, such as going to a school CSE meeting, I charge for travel time and miles.  The rate is $35 an hour for driving time, and $0.50 a mile to cover fuel and other car expenses.
