In his FY12 budget recommendation, President Obama put the needs of young children with disabilities first by including an additional $50 million in funding for critical treatment and services.
This is a step in the right direction, but in the ongoing budget negotiations, nothing is guaranteed.

Support an additional $50 million for Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
Dear President Obama
Your budget recommendation to increase Part C funding by $50 million is a great first step towards prioritizing young children living with disabilities and sends a strong message to Congress that the needs of our most vulnerable children must come first. Thank you for your leadership!For the millions of children with disabilities who go undiagnosed every year, early detection and treatment means the difference between starting school with other children their age and falling behind. Additional funding for the vital programs that these children need will help them learn the skills necessary to be successful and live independent lives.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
