Services Subcommittee

The IACC Services Subcommittee was created in 2008 to assess and improve services and supports for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Its vision is that one day, all people with ASD will have the services and supports they need and desire throughout their lifespan, helping them to reach their fullest potential.

The current array of services and supports available through Federal, state, and local government agencies and private organizations is a patchwork that varies greatly based on where the person with ASD lives, creating unique challenges for people with ASD and their families as they navigate what is often a fragmented system. As the number of children with ASD increases, the nation’s health, education, and social service systems must respond in turn to meet the needs of this growing population. Many adults with ASD remain undiagnosed and underserved, adding further complexity to meeting their needs.

Government agencies, private service organizations, and families must partner to improve and coordinate services to serve a broad spectrum of needs as, ultimately, the success of people with ASD will be largely dependent on the availability and quality of services and supports offered in their communities. The Services Subcommittee recognizes this fact and is working to support a strong services research base, and to raise the profile of ASD services and supports, and to ensure that appropriate, effective, and cost efficient service systems are developed and implemented in communities to improve the quality of life for people with ASD and their families. This subcommittee terminated in 2012 with the establishment of the new IACC under the Combating Autism Reauthorization Act.
