Queens lawmaker introduces legislation to provide skill training for caregivers of children with developmental disabilities


Congresswoman Grace Meng recently introduced a bipartisan bill that would provide access to caregiver skills training for family members who care for children with autism spectrum disorder or other developmental disabilities or delays. 

Meng and her colleagues — Congress members Mike Doyle (D-PA), co-chair of the Congressional Autism Caucus, and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) — introduced the Autism Family Caregivers Act of 2022 on Feb. 18, which is National Caregivers Day.
