Early intervention services should be provided from public funding because it is appropriate to afford children with autism and developmental delays the best opportunity to enjoy the highest quality of life possible. Also the more independent each child can become in the formative years the less public funds will be required later. I also believe that parents should be held accountalble to actively participate in early intervention therapies and education. It is the reinforcement and implementation of therapies in the home that greatly enhances the child's opportunity for progress.

I just came across your posting today. I am in complete agreement with you, but your warning has come true. We just received a notice from the State that our early intervention costs went up almost 9 fold/(nearly 900%) We are lucky our child only has a month and half left of Early Intervention due to his 3rd birthday. But this dramatic increace will surely be very difficult to families just starting with early intervention and in tough finacial condition.

I think that it is not there falt that they were born with autism. The state should have funding for these kids. They deserve a way of life like we do. I stongly disagree!!!!
