US House Passes the TRAIN Act

In September 2010, the US House of Representatives passed the TRAIN (Training and Research for Autism Improvements Nationwide) Act of 2010 (H.R. 5756). This bill will now go to the Senate for consideration. The bill aims to do the following:

  • The Training and Research for Autism Improvements Nationwide (TRAIN) Act of 2010 amends title I of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 to provide for grants and technical assistance to improve services rendered to children and adults with autism, and their families
  • Funding for the grants is authorized at $17 million for each of fiscal years 2012 through 2016
  • The bill expands the number of University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDDS) and gives priority to applicants that demonstrate collaboration with minority institutions
  • Funding for the expansion of the UCEDDS is authorized at $2 million for each of fiscal years 2012 through 2016

Hopefully this bill will get passed so there is more funding available to make training available to those involved in the education of individuals with autism.
