2010 IACC Services Workshop: Building a Seamless System of Services and Supports Across the Lifespan
Posted Nov 05 2010 5:14pm
The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) works to create a strategy for the government and other major funders of autism research.
This is short notice, but there is an important meeting of the IACC this Monday: Building a Seamless System of Services and Supports Across the Lifespan. Services are a minor part of the IACC’s mission in terms of funding so far. I for one would like to see that change. It will be interesting to hear what input the IACC gets at this meeting. For me, the good recommendations made at this meeting will be good points to remind the IACC of in the future. For those with more experience in these matters, it may be good to listen in and, later, offer corrections where appropriate.
As I said above, I’d really like to see services get a greater focus by the IACC. When the public shows support and interest in these meetings it sends a clear signal to the IACC that this is an area worth concentrating upon.
Please join us for the 2010 IACC Services Workshop: Building a Seamless System of Services and Supports Across the Lifespan that will take place on Monday, November 8, 2010, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET in Rockville, MD. Onsite registration will begin at 8:00a.m.
Agenda: The workshop will focus on policy issues related to the system of services and supports for people with ASD and their families, featuring talks from state officials and disability experts from across the country.
