Autism Law Summit
Autism Speaks each year hosts the Autism Law Summit, a gathering of the nation's leading experts in autism insurance reform, legislative strategy and grassroots advocacy. The Summit has evolved from an informal gathering of a handful of advocates passing around a hat to collect pizza money, to a capacity-level event.
The Autism Speaks Legal Resource Center will strategically develop and enforce key legal precedents, organize and train attorneys, coordinate legal resources, and serve as a clearinghouse for legal information and assistance to attorneys, agencies, providers, and affected individuals and families.
