Class Action Suit Seeks Treatment for Autistic Children in Hawai’i

State of Hawai`i Department of Human Services accused of denying critically needed treatment for autistic children

News Release from Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing September 22, 2014 

Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing (AHFI) and the Hawaii Disability Rights Center filed a lawsuit on September 5th in U.S. District Court accusing the State of Hawai`i Department of Human Services of denying critically needed treatment for autistic children. Without the service, called applied behavioral analysis (ABA) treatment, children with autism are less likely to reach their full developmental capacity and are more likely to be institutionalized as adults. The suit seeks an injunction to require the state to provide ABA to be in compliance with federal Medicaid rules. AHFI attorneys Paul Alston, Kristin Holland and Maile Osika represent the plaintiffs.
