Section IV of the President's plan: SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT, COMMUNITY-BASED LIVING FOR AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES
Contained in the plan outline under this section is a specific address relating to Autistic Spectrum Disorder. (ASD) Finally, after fifteen years, a recognition that this condition can be devastating for families, and the one who has been diagnosed with the disease.
Children with disabilities, especially those with this condition who are diagnosed at an early age, have a fighting chance to live close to normal lives.
Politics aside, we must voice our support for this plan and the goals it wants to achieve.
Having provided care for a family member diagnosed early on with this condition, I can speak first hand to the struggle and the battles fought to ensure that the child is given the opportunity to live as close to a normal life as possible.
Even now, finding the right care is a struggle, and helping people understand the impact of ASD on the sufferer and the family, is something where more assistance is needed.
This part of the plan is much needed. Whether you agree with every point or not, nothing in the entire proposal is a negative, and if all aspects were able to move forward, it would be worth it due to the ASD inclusion.
Autistic Spectrum Disorder handicaps other intelligent, caring people. Let's lend our support to the President on this one. If nothing else gets moving, tell your representative to sign up to this plan
