WASHINGTON, DC (September 8, 2014) -- Autism Speaks has named Angela Lello, a policy expert in Medicaid and longterm care and the mother of a child with autism, as its first Director of Housing and Community Living. The position was created in response to the rapid growth of individuals with autism "aging out" of school-based services into adulthood and the lack of services that await them.
