Note: Three states - Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina - have established a distinct government unit that is responsible solely for overseeing or providing services to people with autism. Massachusetts has an Autism Division in its Mental Retardation Department (which is part of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services). Pennsylvania's new (February 2007) Bureau of Autism Services is part of the Department of Public Welfare. And South Carolina's Autism Division is in its Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.
