nitaloweyTo the Editor: Chances are you know a family affected by autism. This devastating, lifelong and little-understood condition now affects 1 in 110 children born today, according to the CDC, yet it is only in the last ten years that the government has begun to address the needs of this burgeoning population.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey has been at the forefront of these efforts. An early and active supporter of autism research, she has served as a high ranking member of both the Congressional Coalition for Autism Research and Education, and the House Appropriations Subcommittee that funds the NIH. She has successfully cosponsored several important bills that dramatically increased funding for autism research related to surveillance, causation, education, early detection, and intervention.

As parents of an autistic child, we appreciate Nita Lowey’s efforts, and believe that she will continue to advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We encourage you to vote for Nita Lowey this Election Day.
