[Source: Disability Scoop]
With little time to spare, President Donald Trump approved an extension of the nation’s primary autism law, authorizing $1.8 billion in spending on the developmental disorder in the coming years.
Trump signed the Autism Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education and Support, or Autism CARES, Act, late Monday. Without action, the prior incarnation of the legislation was set to expire at the end of September.
The act, which originated in 2006, allocates funding for research, prevalence tracking, screening, professional training and other government activities related to autism.
