President Obama: Keep your promise to the Autism Community

In 2008, Senator Barack Obama promised to be the "Autism President". The prevalence of Autism then was one in 150 children. Under his administration, the rate is now estimated at one in 50. Our federal health agencies continue to show no sense of urgency and have no national plan to address this national crisis.

 

Letter to
President of the United States Barack Obama
We ask you to initiate an urgent crisis-level response to Autism in this country. We ask for a Presidential Task Force to develop a long-term national plan with measurable goals to help individuals and families affected by Autism.
