||The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) coordinates all efforts within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) concerning autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The meetings also include scientific presentations from investigators in the field of ASD research. A portion of each meeting is reserved for public comment. A summary of each meeting is posted on the meetings & events page of the IACC website.
