Autism Day on the Hill

February 19, 2014

by Laura Keehner

Tuesday, February 18th, several of us traveled to the state capitol building in Des Moines to attend Autism Day on the Hill. Alyson Beytien, Laura Keehner and Rozy Warder, director of special education for DCSD, were able to present information regarding collaborative autism services we are providing in our area. All of us, including director of physical medicine and rehab services at Mercy Medical Center, Bobbi Schell, were able to visit with legislators from around the state. The day was extremely successful! We will presenting again in early March to senior leaders at the Department of Human Services and Magellan for the state of Iowa regarding our collaboration and approach to treatment for individuals on the autism spectrum.
