California Governor Gavin Newsom must sign SB 562! Children and teens with autism deserve insurance funding for whichever evidence-based treatment method their doctors prescribe for THEM. "Cookie cutter" medicine is not effective.

Families are regularly denied insurance coverage for physician-prescribed, evidence-based behavioral health treatment due to the widespread myth that there is only ONE scientifically proven approach, ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis). Patients deserve to receive whichever of the evidence-based treatments their doctors believe would be most effective for their patient, including *developmental, relationship-based treatment approaches, including DIRFloortime. People with autism have very diverse needs; “one size fits all” method doesn’t work for every patient... Governor Newsom, please sign SB 562 to ensure that families and doctors will have choices!

*Developmental treatment approaches embrace the individual differences of neurodiverse people, celebrate their strengths, offer warmly attuned relationships, and develop their passions. Developmental approaches lead to creative spontaneity, joyful connections with others, and purposeful lives!
