Autism Task Force Goes to Work

(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Dr. Sergio Aguilar Gaxiola of the UC Davis Medical Center is a task force co-chair.  He says treatment is not getting to many kids in poor, uneducated, and minority families, "Once the symptoms have manifested, more complications happen and then, if this happens after a long period of time, the solutions tend to be much harder."

The task force was formed Wednesday by California State Senate leader Darrell Steinberg after an L.A. Times article showed autistic children of Hispanics and blacks received less for treatment compared to whites and Asians.   

The task force hopes to have its recommendations ready by late October.
