|IACC Strategic Plan Objective||2008||2009||2010||2011||2012||Total|
|Develop at least two individualized community-based interventions that improve quality-of-life or health outcomes for the spectrum of adults with ASD by 2015.
IACC Recommended Budget: $12,900,000 over 5 years
|6.L.A. Funding: The recommended budget was partially met.
Progress: Between 11 and 18 projects were supported each year between 2010 and 2012. Progress is being made; however, a sustained effort is needed to fully achieve the goals set forth by this objective. Funding for projects specific to this objective was substantially lower in 2012 than previous years, which is a concern.
Remaining gaps, needs and opportunities: Work focused on adults with ASD lags behind that focused on children and adolescents. This objective is similar to 6.S.A â it might be helpful to separate the outcomes of interest to better assess progress. Also, quality of life outcome measures are needed to know if interventions are working.
