The 12th Annual World Autism Awareness Day

Today is the 12th Annual World Autism Awareness Day! It’s a day to promote awareness and inclusion of people with autism.

We’ve been taking action that will make a meaningful difference in the lives of those with autism and their families by:

✔️ Proposing a $12 million investment through Budget 2019 for the Ready, Willing and Able program to help those with autism enter the workforce

✔️ Investing over $9 million in community-based projects to better serve families’ needs

✔️ Providing funding for a National Resource and Exchange Network for autism information, resources & services

✔️ Investing over $42 million towards research to improve understanding and treatment of autism
