Date:4/30/2009

coverage for her son's treatments. "The vast majority of families today receive absolutely no treatment for their children's autism from their health plans. I think one very important role of this Senate Select committee will be to hold hearings and conduct research to try to uncover why these families aren't getting the health care they pay for and to ensure solutions are found," Almaliti said.

As part of the proceedings and in recognition of National Autism Awareness Month, Steinberg presented a Legislative Resolution to Dr. Barbara Firestone, President and CEO of The Help Group, declaring April 28th, 2009 The Help Group Autism Awareness Day in California commemorating The Help Group's autism efforts. Dr. Firestone served as the Vice-Chair of the California Legislative Blue Ribbon Commission on Autism.

"Under the visionary leadership of Senator Darrell Steinberg, the California Legislative Blue Ribbon Commission on Autism that I had the privilege to Vice Chair, and now the establishment of the Senate Select Committee on Autism & Related Disorders, send a strong message to California's ongoing commitment to bringing help and hope to individuals with autism and their families," said Dr. Firestone.
