Federal Lawmakers Support Autism with Safety and Wandering Act

A "major step forward"

All of the organizations that comprise the Autism Safety Coalition have spoken out in favor of Kevin and Avonte’s Law, and continue to prize it as a major step forward for autism safety and wellbeing. Stuart Spielman, Senior Policy Advisor and Counsel at Autism Speaks, says that “Kevin and Avonte’s Law is a major step forward to help families, caregivers, and first responders protect our loved ones and save the lives of those who may wander.” Today, the organization remains active in seeking awareness of and protection of autistic individuals.
