New York Now 29th State To Provide Coverage To Families
State Senator Patty Ritchie hailed the signing of a new law she supported that will insure that families dealing with autism can obtain the kind of treatment they need.
“Early diagnosis and treatment can make a critical difference for the one out of 110 children and their families affected by autism spectrum disorder,” said Senator Patty Ritchie. “With more than 30,000 children under the age of 19 in New York State identified with autism, this legislation will insure that families can obtain the care they need when they need it.”
State Senator Patty Ritchie recently met with members of SUNY Canton's Student Nurses Association.
