We don't know about Bil and cuts yet (I'm sure we'll find out when we see my mother in law and Bil again next week) but....one of the best advocates for autism in this area, if not the state, Sally Colletti, has lost her job at ACCORD in Binghamton due to budget cuts.
An example of the type of work she did for ACCORD can be found here.
Oh well. Fewer voices for children with special needs. Just as that population increases and increases. We are all going to have to bite the bullet, true. But we've only seen the beginning of this.
And for people of Bil's generation....with their elderly parents who desperately need help....this is really going to hurt.
