University Autism Programs Receive Funding

Governor Rick Snyder has signed legislation awarding $3 million to three Michigan Universities to help expand their autism programs.

Eastern Michigan University, Michigan State University and Western Michigan University will use the funding for autism programs and family support systems.

Snyder says giving universities the resources they need to help build a skilled workforce of behavioral science professionals is an integral step in having advanced options for diagnosing and treating autism.

The money comes from the Autism Coverage Fund, which was established in 2012.
