On Tuesday, Barack Obama will become the nation's 44th president. People are really excited of having him as the new president. After all, people have many reasons to belive on Barack Obama as a new hope. I'm concerned about a particuar issue, which is aspie community. If you read Obama's plan for change
you can imagine what Obama represents in terms of heath improvement for Aspie
community. Here an small extract:

More than one million Americans have Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), a complex condition that impacts communication, socialization, and behavior. And more cases of ASD are being recognized across the country at an alarming pace. Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe that we must do more to help support Americans with ASD, their families, and their communities. Throughout his career, Barack Obama has worked with families affected by ASD to raise awareness and to provide support to parents and families living with ASD. As president, he will build on these many years of advocacy and ensure that his administration prioritizes ASD research, public awareness, and lifelong support services. Barack Obama and Joe Biden will seek to increase federal ASD funding for research, treatment, screenings, public awareness, and support services to $1 billion annually by the end of his first term in office. They will mandate insurance coverage of autism treatment and will also continue to work with parents, physicians, providers, researchers, and schools to create opportunities and effective solutions for people with ASD.



I know there must be other diseases and patologies that also need funding. But, as
ASD is relatively new, its especially important to provide funding for research, treatment, screenings, public awareness, etc. Well, I have to belive on Obama.

Think about: there to litte results in terms of a good treatment for this problem.
doctors just don't have much to do, but prescribe something like Risperdal, Sertralina, etc, which will not overcome any problem at all.
