1 in 68 babies born is diagnosed with Autism-- and every person with autism is different. Treatment for people with autism and other special needs must fit that unique person and family. One size does not fit all. Cookie cutter medicine is wrong.
Sadly, most families are given no choice. The DIRFloortime Coalition is working to get the word out to families and to change the laws. Doctors should be able to freely prescribe the best treatment approach! Families should be able to get insurance coverage for the treatment their doctor prescribes!! Most families never even hear about evidence-based treatments that are person-centered and relationship-based. We need your help! Certain groups spend millions of dollars each year to elect politicians and lobby for laws that allow only one form of treatment. Legislating to allow only one treatment method are unprecedented in the history of medicine.
Our Coalition of parents and professionals is not interested in market share - we are advancing true informed consent and access to care. So please help us support true choice in autism treatment. The DIR/Floortime Coalition of California is a volunteer organization made up of parents and professionals dedicated to the education of: lawmakers, funding agencies, policy makers, and community members about creating access to doctor-prescribed treatment approaches for each patient and about parental right to choose developmental, play-based, family-centered treatment for autism and other developmental disabilities. Donations for these purposes are made to the Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning 501c3 Not for Profit Organization #52-1724162. We greatly appreciate your generosity!
