Advocacy and Public Policy Resources

The Council of Autism Service Providers’ mission is to support our members by cultivating, sharing, and advocating for provider best practices in autism services.

CASP represents the autism provider community to the nation at large including government, payers, and the general public. CASP serves as a force for change, providing information, delivering education, and promoting standards that enhance quality.

If there are public policy issues that are negatively impacting the individuals served by your organization, please reach out to CASP at 

Current Action Items


CASP is working with ABA providers statewide to ensure that they can continue to provide access to applied behavior analysis services.

With workforce shortages and low reimbursement rates, providers are closing their doors while waiting lists continue to grow. If you are a provider, please help be part of the solution by completing this survey.

Caregiver Survey: Accessing ABA Services in California

The CASP California SIG is collaborating with the California Association for Behavior Analysis (CalABA) to advocate for improved access to ABA services. To assist these efforts, if your organization serves autistic individuals in California, please distribute this caregiver survey to your clients.

Contact with any questions.
