The IACC coordinates all efforts within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) concerning ASD. The IACC includes both Federal and public members, which helps to ensure that a wide range of ideas and perspectives are represented and discussed in a public forum.

"Learn the Signs. Act Early." Campaign

Educating people about child development issues is no small task. Through the "Learn the Signs. Act Early." campaign, CDC and its partners work together to educate parents about childhood development, including early warning signs of ASD and other developmental disorders, and encourage developmental screening and intervention. Interested in getting involved in the "Learn the Signs. Act Early." campaign? Find out how to get involved.
