Join now to receive inspiring stories, news and helpful resources all about Autism Spectrum Disorder
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) most recent data indicate that as many as 1 in 54 children in the United States are now diagnosed with autism. Autism is treatable. Many states are responding to the growing needs of those living with autism.
Easterseals has prepared a state-of-the-state report of autism services in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The profiles highlight the number of children with autism who have received the state’s special education services; state insurance coverage for autism, if available; the status of autism coverage in the Essential Health Benefits under the state’s healthcare exchange; Medicaid services specific for individuals with autism; educational programs provided to students with autism or training that focused on autism; special education criteria; other state-led resources; and sponsors of autism legislation.
