Ask NC Senate to pass autism insurance bill

Thank you so much for your article on Autism [“Living Full-Circle with Autism Spectrum Disorder,”June 25, Xpress].  As a mother of a teenager on the spectrum, it is wonderful for a positive article on Autism. North Carolina is one of the best states for Autism help. But one thing is needed to make this the best is that the Autism Insurance bill passes through the State Senate. Please contact your state Senator and ask them to pass bill S493. All on the spectrum will thank you. It was also wonderful to see Arturo Martinez.  He has come to our Third Sunday Service at Avery’s Creek United Methodist Church. It is a service for any child or adult with special needs. If you have any questions about our service, please contact us at or by going to our Facebook page, Third Sunday Service.  Thank you again.
