Please take 5 Minutes to Improve the Lives of Children with Autism - and the families who love them!


THURSDAY the Senate and Assembly are finishing up final negotiations on the Budget and we have the first opportunity in years to possibly restore camping and social recreation, and lift the cap on respite.... but only if we call immediately!  

Nick at Camp, such an important experience! 
For those of you who are not aware, the Regional Center used to provide funding so our children, just like typical children, could enjoy social recreational activities, like summer camp!.  These supports were pulled from the budget and for the first time in at least 10 years we have a shot at getting them back. Will you help?

Everybody can contact the Governor and the Department of Finance (the state's accountants), and if you are also represented by a member of the Conference Committee, call them too. This is moving fast, and will be done by Thursday, so CALL TODAY!

(1) Click here and find your Senator and Assemblymember.
(2) If they are 
on this list, call their office and say "I am a constituent, and I support a Budget restoring camp and social recreation, and lifting the cap on respite services, to help people with developmental disabilities."
(3) 
Contact the Governor's office and also click here to email his representatives in the Department of Finance, and ask for this restoration!
(4) Everybody can also call two key leaders in the Legislature (Senate President Kevin de León, 916-651-4024, and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, 916-319-2063) to say this matters to you! 
Why do we need these services back?

Respite reduces the stress experienced by families and oftentimes allows a trusted relative or friend to provide the service. Some families prefer camp or social recreation services because of the added benefit of group social opportunities for the individual while the family is taking a break from their care. For some, a blending of these services meets their needs best. In 2009, many services, including these, were cut to save money.

In a recent Budget hearing, Democrats and Republicans both said they understand just how valuable these services are to our community. They are interested in restoring them. But we need to put the pressure on to make sure this happens! And we have to act fast, because our chance ends Thursday, when the hearings are finished.

Everybody must remind the Governor, his accountants, Senate President Kevin de León, and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, that bringing this back helps families!

Contacts everyone can make!

Key Legislators (if you are a constituent)

You can make a difference! Raise your voice to support bringing back these important services today.

(1) Contact the Governor, and also click here to email his representative in the Department of Finance.
(2) Tell legislative leaders Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León (916-651-4024) and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (916-319-2063) that this matters!
(3) Find out who your Senator and Assemblymember are. If they are on the list above, call them!
(4) When you contact any of these officials, say who you are, and that "I support restoring social recreation and camp, and lifting the cap on respite, to help people with developmental disabilities."

  5. HOW I WAS CURED TOTALLY FROM AUTISM
    I had my first attack of (AUTISM) when I was 20, I wasn't diagnosed until seven years later when I was totally experiencing speech delay. It was so terrifying that I began dropping things and losing sensitivity to sounds, having severe fatigue and muscle weakness. A horrible poor eyes contact began. I sometimes can't walk straight and fall onto walls and I get leaning disability, the English medications i used proved abortive. i was so frustrated that i had to contact My neurologist,he told me about a new RRMS (relapsing-remitting MS) drug which was only in its trial stage, CAMPATH. I started the chemo-type treatment and some prescribed drugs like: RISPERDAL, EFFEXOR XR, GEODON and MEMANTINE. which resulted in 1st seizure of my life, thereby adding more salt to my injury. As a result to proffer solution to my problems, i started going online in search for a cure, i came across a testimony of a woman who got her cure through HERBAL MEDICATION, at first, i doubted because of the misconception that autism can not be cured. But i later contacted the Doctor through the email provided, and I used his Herbal product, after 1 month of use, I noticed tremendous improvement in my health, 5 months after, I can proudly say, I've been totally cured by Dr.williams Herbal Medication from AUTISM..., If you have the same health issue, you may contact him for a total change of story, Via:autismepilepsy.blogspot.com . I believe your predicament will be a thing of the past just like mine.

  6. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from autism, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered autism in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have difficulty with communication, , and he always complain of poor eye contact . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to autism . I never imagined autism has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.autism has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
