Autism Views from David Swan - Candidate for Utah of Representatives District 21

David Swan is running for Utah House of Representatives District 21 and has made the statement provided below regarding autism in Utah. 


"How we treat those with challenges says a lot about what kind of society we live in. As a parent of a child with autism, I know first-hand the challenges that face families and the costs that they can incur. The pilot program passed by the legislature last year must be the start of addressing this issue, not the finish. Autism rates have steadily increased and Utah’s rate is the highest in the country. Something must be done to address the needs of those with autism now. I will advocate for those with autism and other special needs. Parents need the support of their community and I want to ensure they get that support."
