N.Y. State Autism Council Proposed

ALBANY, N.Y. -- State Sen. Roy McDonald, R-Saratoga, has introduced legislation to create a statewide council on autism that would develop a policy to address the needs of the growing autism population in New York. It would also establish regional centers to assist families and autistic individuals with services and treatment.
"It's time for New York state to become a leader in addressing the needs of families affected by autism and similar type disabilities," said McDonald, who has two grandsons who are autistic.
