TribTalk replay: Is Utah’s free autism program working?
First Published Jul 23 2013 07:25 am • Last Updated Jul 23 2013 02:19 pm

Late last year, the Utah Department of Health launched a pilot program that provides free autism treatment for 250 children with autism, selected by lottery. Most families in the program are satisfied so far, but complex paperwork and a dearth of qualified tutors have caused families headaches, and in a state that leads the nation in autism cases, advocates say the limited program is not enough.

Watch a replay of a Trib Talk live video chat about the program with Jennifer Napier-Pearce, Tonya Hales of the Utah Department of Health and Utah Autism Coalition president Jon Owen.
