Autism Research and the IACC: Your voice matters!

It is more important than ever to make sure autism research reflects what matters to all of us. Make your voice heard by submitting a comment to the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee before each meeting! Learn more about the IACC, and how to submit a comment, with our new resource!

The IACC advises on federal funding for autism research. They make recommendations on how autism research funding is prioritized. You can push the IACC to advocate for research that matters to our community by submitting a public comment telling them what kind of research you want to see. You can do that by submitting a comment using this form, and asking the committee to prioritize the research you care about. This toolkit will help you with sending in a comment.

The toolkit is available in two versions:

  • Our Easy Read edition. The Easy Read version is written in Plain Language. It uses large text and uses images to support the text.
  • A Plain Language version with smaller text and not as much white space.
Easy Read Edition

The Easy Read Edition is split into parts. Each part has its own Words to Know section, and there is also a separate Words to Know part with all of the terms from every section. Click on the title of any of the parts below to download it:
