We are pleased to welcome the creation of The National Council on Severe Autism (NCSA). This vital new organization was founded and headed by our good friend Jill Escher (also President of Autism Society San Francisco, organizer of their terrific annual housing conference and former Camp Krem board member. Busy lady!). Other founders include our friends Feda Almaliti, Amy Lutz, Alison Singer, Liza Parles and others. Learn more at: www.ncsautism.org

NSCA is asking everyone affected by severe autism to go to the website and sign up.
The larger their mailing list, the more impact they will have in policy debates at the federal and state level — including increasing the range of residential and vocational options available to those with I/DD .
