For Autism, Try Vouchers, Not Mandates

John LaPlante points out on SPN Blog that instead of health care mandates, autism advocates should be pointing to tax credits or scholarships for autistic children. As opposed to the new mandate, such a reform would help children while saving taxpayers.

Indeed Ohio already has an scholarship program specifically for autistic students, and several states – Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and Utah – have special needs scholarships.
