Ideas for Change

ASAN Southwest Ohio would like to encourage autistic self-advocates to participate in an online competition sponsored by Change.org to present ideas for change to the new presidential administration and Congress.

Tomorrow, Wednesday the 31st of December, is the last day for voting. There are several proposed ideas that would be useful to autistic citizens, including the following:

Fully Fund Medicaid Waivers for the Developmentally Disabled
Replace No Child Left Behind With a Strong Education Policy
Independence and Services for Disabilities and Autism

You must register and sign in with a Change.org account in order to vote in the competition.

There is a bill on there called Autism Reform Act that does not support Autism rights at all - but has a majority of the votes....

Its a very sad story. I encourage you to look into the truth behind the Autism Reform Act of 2009

Thanks for bringing attention to this, Zach. People should always make sure that they are well informed before they vote.
