Encouragement: President Signs disability diagnoses bill into law

Hi Guys,

Here’s an update on some recent legislation related to disability issues. It’s official- the disability diagnosis bill is now a law. Signed on October 8, 2008, the bill is renamed Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act . The law gives the Department of Health and Human Services permission to create a grant program to gather information about down syndrome as well as other prenatal and postnatal diagnosed diseases. This information will be shared with anxious parents who encounter such a diagnosis.
