2017 Keynote: How the Public Policy Landscape Affects You
For the past 50 years, the US and State legislatures have enacted legislation that has transformed the service landscape for people with autism and other special needs. Only recently, however, has research examined the impact of these policies on individuals with ASD and their families. This presentation will summarize research that examines the effects of some of those policies, including autism insurance mandates, Medicaid policies, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. It will include future directions for policy and services research and ways you can support strategic advocacy to improve healthcare, educational, and adult services.
Presented by David Mandell, Sc.D., University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Mental Health Policy and Services Research & Center for Autism Research at Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania and Suzanne Buchanan, Psy.D., BCBA-D, Autism New Jersey Executive Director.
