|I did it! (once)|
Big news! So, Utah Republicans have come up with a way to help 800 children with autism get the therapy they need. I'm glad that some kids will get help. I have some concerns though.
According to the Children's Defense Fund, there are 868, 000 children living in Utah. From what I understand, Utah's autism rate is higher than the national average at 1 in 77. That means we have about 11,000 autistic children.
So, 800 kids will get help when 11,000 need help. Hmmm.
I'm going to a town hall meeting tomorrow night to learn more. I'll try to stay positive. Meanwhile, Ben is having a really hard time getting to sleep tonight. Potty training has been going well at school, but not so much at home. Poop.
