In response to growing public health concerns regarding rising rates of autism, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Education have organized the 2003 "Autism Summit." This conference is designed to engage in a public dialogue concerning issues such as implementation of optimal services, early screening and diagnosis, and biomedical research.
The conference will include general keynote sessions from public officials, as well as targeted sessions to cover each of these specific content areas. An outline of the issues addressed at the Summit can be found by clicking on this link: Summit Outline. The 2003 "Autism Summit" complements the activities of the several government organizations that have been participating in the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee since its inception in 2001. The IACC was formed in response to a mandate of the Children's Health Act of 2000 and will hold its regularly scheduled semi-annual meeting on the NIH campus on November 21, 2003.
