Autism Live, in affiliation with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, has created a petition at:

http://www.change.org/petitions/secretary-of-health-and-human-services-kathleen-sebelius-protect-the-health-care-coverage-of-individuals-with-autism-2

In order to combine advocacy efforts, please click the link above to sign the Autism Live petition. Unfortunately, Change.org does not allow for two petitions to be merged, and having two "competing" petitions defeats the intended purpose of both. I am more than happy to support the efforts of Autism Live, and hope you will join me!

My original petition and it's accompanying comments were delivered to the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Tuesday, Dec. 4 with nearly 1,700 signatures! Thank you for your support of this effort. Please lend the same support to the Autism Live petition!

If you are an Ohio resident, please also consider signing my petition in support of an Ohio mandate for autism insurance coverage:

      I have friends who struggle with the costs of caring for their autistic children every day. My own son is a type 1 diabetic. So, I know how hard it can be when things aren't covered. Autistic children deserve the same benefits as other children.
