L.A. County Center Likely To Maintain Autism Treatment
Under a preliminary settlement agreement, the Eastern Los Angeles County Regional Center would continue to provide a type of autism treatment known as the DIR model. The settlement comes in a class-action lawsuit filed by the Public Counsel Law Center on behalf of families of children with autism after the center said it would no longer pay for the therapy. A judge still must approve the settlement.
