Ask Michelle Obama to Meet With Autism Families

This petition was published by Shannon Des Roches Rosa on Jul 10, 2009

We, the undersigned, propose that Michelle Obama meet with Shannon Des Roches Rosa, Jennifer Byde Myers, Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg, and Lindsey Nebeker, representatives of the autism community, to discuss effective strategies for providing urgently needed direct assistance to overstressed autism families and individuals on the autism spectrum.

We believe that an Autism Corps, based on the Teach for America model, can supply trained volunteers to effect this assistance and provide four to fourteen weekly hours of one-to-one in-home support for people with autism.

We believe supporting adult autistics and autism families who have immediate needs for day-to-day assistance supersedes discussion of ongoing autism research and causation.

We believe in supporting measures that benefit all in-need children with autism, adult autistics, and autism families.
