Description
 
Autism -- a developmental disorder involving communication and social impairment -- is an important public health concern. From FY 2008 through 2012, 12 federal agencies awarded at least $1.4 billion to support autism research and other autism-related activities. The Combating Autism Act of 2006 (CAA) directed the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) to coordinate the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) autism activities and monitor all federal autism activities. It also required the IACC to develop and annually update a strategic plan for autism research. This plan is organized into 7 research areas that contain specific objectives. This report (1) analyzes the extent to which federal agencies fund potentially duplicative autism research; and (2) assesses the extent to which IACC and agencies coordinate and monitor federal autism activities. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
