Please help the kids that really need it!

There is a bill (Senate Bill 101- Habilitative Therapy Services)before the Senate that will really help children with disabilities. They can't write the letters, but you can! Please take a minute, follow the link to find your representatives and send the following letter. Thank you very very much!!

Dear State Senator ___________________________________________

I am writing to request your support for the amended version of SB 101. The proposed legislation would provide insurance coverage for children up to 19 yers of age who are in need of habilitative services, including physical, occupational and speech and language therapies. This legislation is needed since some insurance companies deny therapy coverage or limit the number of sessions for children solely based on their diagnosis of developmental disability. The children that would be covered by the proposed legislation include children with a congenital, genetic or early acquired disorder.

As you know, the impact of therapy services for young children is significant. The earlier we support children and their families the better the outcomes in the future. I would greatly appreciate your support of Senate Bill 101.
