Because of the government shutdown, the Interagency Autism Coordinating Council (IACC) has moved its previously scheduled October 9th meeting to October 29th.

This tentative scheduled is based on the government going back to business prior to the revised date. (Based on publishing time of the blog the vote still hasn’t occurred.)

Many government offices closed on October 1st including the Office of Autism Research Coordination within the National Institutes of Health, and the IACC.

The full-day October 29th meeting is one of four meetings per year that scheduled to “discuss updates and issues related to ASD research and services, activities, committee business, and updates from IACC members about current activities at their agencies and organizations.” You can read more about the meeting details including time and location (1.)

On this blog, we have written several times about the IACC, who they are and what they do. Here are the links:




Will you be going to the IACC meeting on October 29th? Please let us know.  You can pre-register for the event and post a public comment if you cannot attend (1.)

If you have a child diagnosed with autism you should know more about the IACC.
