affectionate. he is best buddy anyone couldld possibly have.av >> he's absolutely amazing. ama. there's a picture you told metom that you guys love to travel.o e he loves to travel with you guys and have a lot of fun. ofun >> he loves to travel.e loves tt he's always up for a car trip, i plane trip.ri he's an adventure traveler there further away the better. >> when you are not -- you're yu always zach's dad but when w you're in your role with autismt speaks do you a lot of things tg advocate on their behalf.eh tell us about your work and whaw do you for autism speaks.aks. >> so i get to spend lot of timt on capitol hill, and at executive agencies and i try to help develop policy that helps people like zach, helps families of people who are on the autismm spectrum just good sound public policies. poci >> tell us about the stridesstrs you've made recently withade nt something called the able act.. how that can help people who aro living with autism.autis >> sure. thanks for asking about that.ab. so the able act is
college savings account exceptnp it's for disability expenses. ee for years people have been able to save for college which is an expense for many transitioningio young people.yog pe >> sure. >> but they haven't been able to save for life expenses. ese zach is not going to go tointo g college but sack will have a loa of expenses in his lifetime. and able is families like mine the opportunity to provide a better future for zach.r >> is the able act nationwide? d tell us a little bit more. i know with your work that's tha goal. goal >> sure. >> tell us is it available yetib in maryland, d.c., virginia?ni >> soon. sn >> okay all right.>> >> where we are now is theis the federal government passed authorizing legislation decemb december 2014.de the authorizing legislation required action by the states.. now, in less than two yearstwo y we've had 38 states and the andt district of columbia endable aca laws offering able programs ors facilitating able program. we expect these pog
off the ground soon, and i thint these programs are going to be trance pharma tiff.a tif one of things that reallyea concerns me is as a citizen, as, an advocate is the problem poverty. people who are disable are morem than twice as likely to be in poverty as people that are nottn disable.disa we have no reason to think in ti the autism community pour rei p rates are any different. dfe able is another tool to mitigatt poverty by providing an ability to save money and still receivei search public programs like l supplemental security income and medication. able gives individualsiv individuals more opportunities.i >> let me speak to the folks ous there watching right now.. who may be, hooks may haveay h teenagers or adult children with autism. what's your advice to them about how to navigate this advocateat for their children, what would a you say to them? >> so i think first of all, they have have to be fierce andfierce
that the tal leapt that they see in their kids is there foror everyone else to see. s it is a matter of opening people's eyes.ye now, today is the day when w people have talked about memberm as you mentioned earlier one in 68 children cdc are on thehe spectrum another number i want m to bring up and that's number is 50%.50%. over 50% of young adults with autism two years out of high o g school have neither jobs or are post secondary.on that's a figure we have toure wo change.ange and it will require good sounddu public policy and it's goings gi require us as parents to demandm that our kids get theet opportunities they deserve.ey de >> we've made some changes butae we still have long way to go. tg >> a long way to go. to. >> stewart thanks so much for ta coming in. >> thank you.hank >> thank you for sharing your story and sharing sag with us.hu we wish you guys all the best.t. >> it's been a pleasure.leur >> guys, back over to the couchu >> shawn, thank you coming upomn next, okay, ladies, this is
