A01633 Memo:


TITLE  OF BILL:  An act to amend the public health law, in relation to
establishing a state autism advisory board

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:  The  purpose  of  this  bill  is  to
establish  a  state  autism  advisory board with the goal of providing
better treatments and services to person on the autism spectrum

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one creates the  state  autism
advisory board.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Current figures estimate that one in 150 children is on
the  autism  spectrum.  Throughout  the  state,  there  is  a  lack of
consistency in autism services and  the  criteria  used  to  determine
service  eligibility.  Parents  frequently  move  (at  great  personal
expense), to school districts and counties with  better  services  for
their  children, causing overload for these areas. This advisory board
will make recommendation  to  make  the  provision  of  services  more
consistent from region to region in New York State.

PRIOR  LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:   A.5363 (2011-12), Held in Health; A.8828
(2009-10), Held in Health.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
