EBCALA – Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy
The purpose of EBCALA is to educate lawyers, advocates and parents about the legal challenges of autism. Formed in late 2008, EBCALA provides training, resources and a forum within which to advance legal and advocacy strategies to improve the lives of those with autism.
The autism community faces severe legal hurdles in many areas, including special education, insurance, healthcare, family law, criminal law and tort law, as well as vaccine injury. Since 2009, EBCALA has organized annual conferences to address the unique legal needs of the autism community.
