CUSP supports NYS Autism Communication Legislation

Posted by admin on April 27, 2015  /   Posted in CUSP Services

Today CUSP was privileged to be invited to the NYS Assembly in Albany NY for a press conference to support new Autism legislation.  NYS Autism Communication Legislation

The legislation, which was drafted by Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara with the help of two local CUSP students and could serve as a model across the country, is supported by the Schenectady ARC, the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership (GRASP). The proposal is a critical step in addressing the high unemployment rates for people with developmental disabilities.

At the press conference, many activists shared firsthand experiences about the importance of this legislation, outline the potential benefits and explain why this model should be adopted across the country.

The legislation is being sponsored in the state Senate by David Carlucci, the chair of the Senate Social Services Committee and former chair of the Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee.

Thank you so much for allowing CUSP to partake in the afternoon’s activities.
