Melissa Mullins started this petition to Alabama State House and

In 2017, Autism families and communities packed the Alabama State House in efforts to expand insurance coverage for ABA therapy for Autistic individuals. While we did succeed in our efforts, we also now need to lift the age caps that were placed. Autism is a lifelong condition and DOES NOT stop at any particular age. Many individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder will require services and therapies their entire life. It is very discriminatory to stop life altering, cognitive and life skills, therapies and services available to Autistic individuals over the age of 18-21. We need your help! Help us get our federal and state Legislators to take up this cause in the next Legislative session by introducing a bill directed at removing the age caps on therapies and services available to Alabama's Autism Community.
