From the Autism Society of America
Tuesday’s health care vote delay was a small victory, but by no means is our work yet complete. Anything can happen between now and after the July 4th recess, so we must keep up the pressure! Our purpose is simple – defeat the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). Lives are at stake.
The BCRA is harmful to people with autism and other disabilities; the proposal radically alters our nationwide Medicaid system of care and strips essential services from America’s most vulnerable communities. If this bill passes, home and community-based services could cease to exist, including personal care attendants and rehabilitation and habilitative therapies – all essential long-term living services people with autism and their families rely on to lead healthy, independent, and fulfilling lives.
Take action NOW! Join the Autism Society of America for our special Friends and Family Call-in. We need everyone to reach out to your senators and tell them to oppose proposed Medicaid cuts and vote NO on the BCRA. If your senator is already committed, focus your efforts on activating friends and colleagues in other states. Then ask a loved one to do the same. Use our toolkit for suggested messaging and additional information. Let’s make sure senators know people with autism are engaged and ready to stand up for access to quality, affordable care.
The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans is excited to announce two Family Game Night locations; one in Slidell and another in New Orleans! Family Game Night is an opportunity for children on the spectrum and their siblings to not only have fun but to learn while they are having fun. It is also an opportunity for parents to mingle and network with other parents. There will be an assortment of games with varying levels of physical activity, e.g., board games, interactive games, scavenger hunts, one-on-one, two-person or multi-player games. And there will be a variety of volunteers playing the games along with the children to assist with game instructions, rules, and modeling how to play the games appropriately. Come join us for some friendly family competition and some good ole fun! More information is available on our Family Game Night page.
The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans is pleased to announce three locations for our Brushes, Buddies, and Beyond program. One in Chalmette, one in Metairie, and one now in Belle Chasse! Our Chalmette sessions, in collaboration with JBJ Creations, are held at Covenant United Methodist Church, 115 East D’Amour St. The Metairie sessions are in collaboration with and held at the East Jefferson YMCA, 6691 Riverside Drive.
