Supporting Americans with Disabilities
We applaud the Obama White House for its continuing support of individuals with disabilities. Through the stimulus act, the administration committed additional funds to autism research, on top of the existing National Institutes of Health funding and Combating Autism Act funding.
Kareem Dale, Special Assistant to the President for Disability Policy, blogged yesterday about another move the administration made to support those with disabilities. Read more here in his White House blog. We applaud all their efforts to move the disability agenda ahead and we look forward to seeing what’s around the next corner for autism.
