Did you know that President Donald Trump signed a $1.8 billion bill to fund autism education and support? That’s right!
At the end of September 2019, Trump signed the Autism Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education and Support Act (CARES) into law which will allocate funding to people on the autism spectrum, along with their families.
Bill sponsor Rep. Chris Smith said, "The problem of 'aging out' of services is a real hurdle every parent or caretaker of a child with autism inevitably faces.”
"All children grow up and become adults, and children with autism then lose their education services,” he continued, “But autism is a lifetime neurological disorder, and adults with autism continue to need their services."
Today, I was proud to sign the Autism CARES Bill! We support research for Americans with Autism and their families. You are not forgotten, we are fighting for you! pic.twitter.com/syyaLR0sNq

ABC News reports:
The funding, which backs autism research and autism-related support programs, will also prioritize grants for rural and underserved areas.
Approximately 1 in every 59 children has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The developmental disability, which is characterized by social, communication and behavioral problems, is four times more prevalent in males than in females.
New Jersey has a higher-than-average autism rate, with 1 in 34 children diagnosed with the disorder. While the reason for that high rate isn't known, one explanation could be the state's robust screening and diagnostic services.
Go ahead and log this under things that the mainstream media does not want you to know about...especially with the upcoming election! Even more of a reason for us to spread the news!
