A First Look at the 2023 IACC Strategic Plan
Wednesday, April 26, 2023
2:00 PM EST - 3:00 PM EST
The IACC Strategic Plan, first issued in 2009, guides federal agencies and private organizations in planning ASD-related research, services, and support activities. It is produced by the IACC, including federal officials and public stakeholder members. It is informed by extensive input from researchers, adults on the autism spectrum, parents, advocates, and the general public. This inclusive process ensures that the IACC Strategic Plan reflects diverse perspectives across the autism community.
This webinar is sponsored by AUCD's Autism Special Interest Group for Autism Acceptance Month.
