Dear Nevada Autism Advocate,
The autism insurance reform movement in Nevada is ramping up to achieve coverage for children with autism this year. We need everyone's help!
Volunteers in four other states - Arizona, Florida, Louisiana and Pennsylvania have been able to achieve insurance coverage for their children this year! A total of seven states now meet standards of appropriate coverage, ending autism insurance discrimination and covering treatments and therapies that are medically necessary for our children, such as speech, occupational therapy, and applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy.
HOW CAN YOU HELP IN NEVADA?
1. VISIT the AutismVotes.org website and register to receive advocacy alerts. This will ensure that you receive the most updated information as quickly as possible.
2. EMAIL US if you are interested in serving as a District Captain to lead efforts in your own home district, attend rallies, speak with state legislators, attend hearings at the capitol and help us spread the word.
3. FORWARD this email to your family, friends, neighbors, teachers, therapists and co-workers...anyone who lives in Nevada that would be interested in helping you work to end insurance discrimination for children with autism statewide!

Have a GREAT week!
