A Big Victory For Families of Children with Autism

Saturday, April 22, 2017


A unanimous vote could soon mean a huge victory for families of children with autism. The Alabama House of Representatives Thursday voted in favor of the bill mandating coverage of applied behavioral analysis therapy. Some parents say this will be life-changing for their children. Advocates have fought for insurance coverage for the treatment that costs parents thousands of dollars each month. The Autism Society of Alabama says Alabama is one of only five states that does not require the coverage. The bill now heads to the Senate with roughly one month remaining in the legislative session.
