The Michigan Autism Council was announced on July 3, 2012 through an Executive Order No. 2012-11 by Governor Rick Snyder. The Executive Order created the Council under the Michigan Department of Community Health (presently the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services) as an advisory body to review, adopt and implement the Michigan Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) State Plan.
The Autism Council identified priorities to address the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder across the lifespan and developed three primary committees (Early Childhood, Child and Youth, Adult) to support State implementation efforts of the Michigan ASD State Plan. In addition, an Insurance Committee was formed to address issues specific to the Autism Insurance Legislation. Each committee is charged with the development of activities that address needs identified in the ASD State Plan. These committee plans are updated regularly and inform the annual report.
