I received an email response from my letter. This is it in it's entirety.
March 31, 2011
Thank you for writing to me about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). I recognize the profound impact ASDs have on millions of Americans, and I appreciate hearing from you.
For too long, the needs of people with disabilities, including individuals and families living with ASDs, have gone unrecognized and unmet, and remedying this neglect has been important to me throughout my career. This commitment has continued into my Presidency, and my Administration has already increased funding for autism research, screenings, treatment, life-long services, and public awareness.
We must support children and adults living with ASDs. Safe universal screenings are essential for infants, as are re-screenings for children at or before two years -- an age at which some conditions, including ASDs, begin to appear. I will continue to work with Congress, experts, and families to improve Federal and State ASD programs. We remain committed to leveling the playing field for all Americans with disabilities.
Again, thank you for writing. To learn more about this important issue, please visit www.HealthCare.gov or www.WhiteHouse.gov.
