Thank You! We Did it!
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed into law a bill to establish a new state license for providers of applied behavior analysis (ABA) services to individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
This is an important bill that will help many of the families of UNYAA. The bill goes into effect as of July 1st. Their are many families that have had to go without this service or have had to pay out of pocket which can be very costly. This bill will correct the bill signed in Nov 2012 which required licensed ABA therapy to be covered, but at that time we had no ABA license.
The new law makes New York the 13th state to create licenses for ABA practitioners.
