I got this in an email the other day I thought it would be a good thing for many of you. I have not had a chance to go all the way though the blog yet, just glanced at it. Very neat if we can help make this happen.
The Utah Autism Coalition needs your help. Recent laws have passed in 8 states requiring health insurance providers to cover treatments (like speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy) for autism. They are working on a similar bill here in Utah. The only way these laws passed in other states was through an enormous grass roots effort. Check out the blog and see if this is something that interests you. If so, join the e-mail list, and maybe even volunteer to be a liaison for your legislative district. The bill will only pass with the help of parents, grandparents, friends, and professionals all over the state. Let Utah legislators hear your voice. This legislation is supported by Autism Speaks.
Join the e-mail list by sending your contact information to Utautismcoalition@gmail.com
