Question 2: Objective 5  

Fiscal Year: 2008

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount.2.5 Complete a large-scale, multi-disciplinary, collaborative project that longitudinally and comprehensively examines how the biological, clinical, and developmental profiles of children, with a special emphasis on females, youths, and adults with ASD change over time as compared to typically developing people by 2020. IACC Recommended Budget: $126,200,000 over 12 years.
