COSAC’s Government Affairs Activities
Advocacy is essential to COSAC´s mission to improve the lives of individuals with autism and
their families. As New Jersey’s Autism Resource, COSAC advises state and federal decision makers,
treatment professionals and educators, the media, families and the general public on the laws and
regulations that impact individuals with ASDs and the autism community.
Additionally, we work to foster and expand the advocacy skills of the autism community, and
empower those affected by autism to bring about positive changes in their own communities and beyond.
