I'm a single parent with a 9 year old. Solomon was diagnosed with autism at he age of 2. If it wasn't for Medicaid I would not have been able to afford his therapies. Early intervention of autism helps reduce symptoms dramatically and reduce the level of care these individuals require throughout their life. That translates into huge savings in more intensive care over a lifetime. It is money well spent for the taxpayer - and it has allowed me to continue t work and pay taxes too. Don't cut Medicaid for kids with disabilities!
