Autism Speaks Withdraws Endorsement of Alabama Autism Insurance Reform Bill

April 10, 2011

NEW YORK (April 10, 2012) -- Autism Speaks announced that it is withdrawing its endorsement of Alabama's autism insurance reform legislation, as a result of a newly introduced substitute bill that would provide little or no relief to parents paying tens of thousands of dollars a year for critical treatments. Autism Speaks will continue to work with local advocates, including the Autism Society of Alabama, on pursuing meaningful legislation.
