Brian Sandovalís Budget Would Boost Autism Funding in Nevada

Gov. Brian Sandoval's new budget proposes to significantly increase funding to treat the estimated 6,000 children in Nevada diagnosed with autism. However, a wait list of about 1,000 children seeking services is expected to continue, state lawmakers were told Wednesday.

Total spending on children with autism spectrum disorder would jump to $73 million in the new budget from about $10 million currently, resulting in services being provided to 836 children by the end of fiscal year 2017, lawmakers reviewing the Department of Health and Human Services budget were told.


That is up from the 572 children expected to receive services by the end of this fiscal year through the Autism Treatment Assistance Program operated by the state Aging and Disability Services Division.
