New Bill Proposes Update to the Combating Autism Act

autism-speaks-logoThe Combating Autism Reauthorization Act (CARA) was introduced in Congress yesterday as an update to the original Combating Autism Act (CAA) of 2006 which will expire in September 2011. 

Under the CAA, the government authorized $1 billion to be used for research over five years.  The research helped improve methods for autism screening and detection in infants and toddlers; identify genes associated with autism that may help with early detection; and develop standard care guidelines, training, and treatments to deal with autism issues.

Supported by Autism Speaks and a bi-partisan senate, the new bill seeks to extend government funding toward autism research, treatments, and planning  for three more years.

    I think that your article was a good read, so I posted it on my Facebook page to hopefully give you some more readers. Perhaps you could look into something like that to make it easier for your readers to do this. Just my 2 cents.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Cheers NIGGER GAY PORN

    An attention-grabbing discussion is worth comment. I believe that it is best to write more on this topic, it won’t be a taboo subject however generally persons are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
