South Carolinians Write to Governor About Ryan's Law

Governor Sanford,

I am writing in regards to "Ryans Law", to give insurance coverage across the state of South Carolina for children with Autism. This is a very important law and needs you to sign it to pass.

As a special education teacher, I have dealt with many families with Autistic children and have taught many autistic children. These families have so very much to deal with and truly need the support of insurance companies in order to best meet the needs of their very special children. It was in fact, an autistic child who made me want to become a special education teacher and change my major from music more than 10 years ago and I feel blessed for doing so.

Please sign the Autism Equality Act. It was passed unanimously by the house and
senate and now just needs your signature. Your signing this bill
would positively impact children, families, their friends and schools.

Again, please give these very special children your support and help them get all of the services that are rightfully theirs and should be covered by their insurance companies.

Thank you,

Shelley Hardin
