Autism New Jersey Public Policy
Autism New Jersey ensures that the needs of its constituents are addressed through meetings with legislators and government officials, testimony and written comments on pending initiatives and participation on committees and coalitions addressing topics such as: early intervention, special education, adult services and health insurance.
We facilitate collaboration with government and private agencies to promote easier access to services. We also educate and advise elected and appointed officials on issues that impact the autism community.
Autism New Jersey thoughtfully selected the following priorities to increase access to and funding for medically necessary, educational, behavioral, and residential services:
- Health Insurance
- Increasing Availability and Quality of Behavioral Services
- Adult Services
