The needs of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and the ability of the state to meet those needs are in stark contrast. There are simply not enough slots available through the Autism Waiver to meet the growing needs of ADULTS on the spectrum.
How can WE change this reality?
Families and individuals are uniquely positioned to effectively drive home the message that the powers that be have overlooked the needs of adults with ASD for far too long, and that has to change!
ASRC has always believed that families can make a difference at the Connecticut General Assembly and will continue to work with policy makers to change the system of support for our families, but we cannot do it without YOU!
Together, we can do this by educating policy makers just like we did in the years before when we were able to get a pilot program in place for our ASD adults, which a few years later led to our now Medicare waiver and what is now known as our state Autism Division.
With over 1800 individuals waiting for a slot on the waiver, the time for change is NOW! We are calling upon you to once again, come together and repeat that success by establishing many more slots.
Contact your elected officials TODAY and tell them how they can use their votes to support our ASD community.
