This bill requires private health care to cover the cost of therapy when dealing with AS kids. All it needs is the Governor's signature.

We are having a terrible time here in Ontario, with regard to Autism Spectrum kids getting health and social services care.

The provincial ('state') healthcare system only wants to pay for stuff like ABA/IBA until the kids are 6 years old.

And of course, that doesn't give much treatment if a kid is not diagnosed until age 3 or 4. :S

Treatment is $30-60K/year. People are losing their homes to pay for treatment, etc.

Insane.

Napolitano signed it into law. Nice to see AZ being proactive in something. :p

And no, the Steven this was named for isn't mine. Odd coincidence though.
