16,000 students in our state have autism, and on Monday, the state will announce its plan to offer better help to them and their families.
This comes from a special board Gov. Snyder created last summer to learn more about autism spectrum disorders.
Lt. Gov. Brian Calley has been a key member of the board and helped pass a law that requires most state-regulated health insurers to offer some coverage for autism treatment. Lt. Gov. Calley has a daughter with autism.
