Interim Committee on Autism Spectrum Disorders

After the wave of support for the autism bill during the 2009 session, an Interim Committee on Autism Spectrum Disorders was created in order to evaluate how the issue effects the citizens of Missouri and what the best solution(s) are to helping those effected by the disorder.

Read the Speaker of House's press release on his decision to create the interim committee.

The committee heard testimony from families, medical specialists and insurance companies on subjects such as the epidemiology of autism, the cost of a mandate, the cost of lack of treatment, ABA, and educational vs. medical treatment. Read the committee's report here.
