Two bills are expected to be introduced in New Jersey next week that are aimed at improving services and protections for adults with autism. One measure would extend anti-discrimination protections to adults with autism. Another would allow individuals to add themselves to an online state autism registry that helps to allocate services. State Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts said that the state has focused on children who have autism, but he sees a "growing need" to improve the lives of adults who have the disorder.
