Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism organization and advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families, retained Open Door Media (ODM) to build and activate a statewide coalition to generate support for expanded insurance coverage for autism therapies legislation. ODM works closely with New Jersey’s autism advocacy organizations, medical professionals, patient advocacy groups and families whose lives had been touched by autism. In the past, ODM has spearheaded a successful grassroots and media relations campaign that successfully culminated with a public signing of the landmark legislation with the New Jersey Governor and members of the coalition at Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick.
