After submitting your testimony, we have two calls to action for families:

Step One:  Call Congressman Darrell Issa and thank him for making the autism hearing possible. Please ask for additional autism hearings.  Phone (760) 599-5000.

Step Two: please call your congressional representative and let them know how important future hearings are to your family. Don’t know your congressman? That’s easy! Find your congressman by ZIP Code here: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/. Share your family’s story and testimony.   Have your representative contact Congressman Darrell Issa to get involved in future efforts.

This issue is hugely important to our families and the 1 in 88 can no longer wait. Thank you for taking the time to help.
