Douglas Leslie’s research “Medicaid Waivers Targeting Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder Reduce The Need For Parents To Stop Working” was published in the journal of Health Affairs’ February 2017 issue. This issue spotlights the complex and constantly evolving relationship between work and health, from the perspective of both employers and employees.

Leslie and his collaborators found that Medicaid waivers were effective at allowing parents of children with autism spectrum disorder to remain in the work force.

Douglas Leslie also participated in an issue briefing hosted by Health Affairs at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to present his study as well as discuss strategies for building the safest, healthiest, and most productive workforce possible.
