Human Interest News Texas Autism News

May 25, 2016- "Sam Allen, Young Man with Autism, Campaigns for Notice on Driver's Licenses"- Thanks to the efforts of Sam Allen, a 21-year-old with autism, and his mother, Jennifer, who is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit awareness and advocacy organization Aspergers101, the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS) is promoting several new initiatives for drivers with autism. They collaborated with the TXDPS to spread the word about an optional “communication impediment” notice that can be placed on the back of driver’s license. It has been available to the public for a while now, but many people were unaware of it. The TXDPS will also offer additional training and education about ASDs for its officers and recruits, in addition to hosting a “Driving with Autism” camp in concert with Aspergers101.
