Autism Speaks Autism Law Center

Autism Law Summit

The Autism Law Summit is an annual, two-day gathering of parent advocates, autism service providers, lawyers, individuals with autism, lobbyists, and legislators from across the United States who are interested in the politics and policy of autism spectrum disorders. Now in its 12th year, the Autism Law Summit creates space for interactive, high-level, expert-facilitated conversations on improving health insurance, Medicaid, and transition to adulthood.

Smart, passionate people come to brainstorm strategies and hatch plans for shaping autism law and policy, and to spend quality time with friends from across the country who've shared similar experiences. Discussion topics include:

  • Health insurance coverage for autism treatments, including Applied Behavior Analysis
  • Medical necessity determinations
  • Insurance billing, coding, credentialing, and contracting best practices
  • Mental health parity legal protections
  • Medicaid's Early Periodic Screening Diagnostic and Treatment program
  • IDEA transition
  • The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
  • Vocational Rehabilitation laws and programs
  • Law and policies on adult services
