Report: Lack of autism specialists creating long wait times for children

A new report says Michigan lacks enough autism specialists to handle the number of children being diagnosed and treated with the disorder.

The public is invited to a free symposium where the Affordable Care Act will be discussed by media and policy experts. 

Marianne Udow-Phillips is Director of the Center for Health Care Research and Transformation, which is hosting Monday's event. 

Udow-Phillips says journalists from the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and the New York Times will discuss how the Affordable Care Act has been portrayed in the media.
