The organization ALUT, the Israeli Society for Autistic Children, met earlier this week with Prime Minister’s Office director-general Harel Locker, as well as with representatives of the Treasury and Ministry of Social Affairs, to discuss public services that have been significantly reduced due to budget cuts.

The meeting came two weeks after ALUT and hundreds of parents of autistic children started a protest movement calling for the government to allocate an appropriate budget for relevant services.

According to ALUT, over 1,500 children are diagnosed with different levels of autism each year in Israel.
