Summary of Advances in Autism Spectrum Disorder Research, 2009
Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee
Each year the members of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee identify recent research findings that made the most impact on the field. For the 2009 Summary of Advances, the IACC selected and summarized 20 studies that gave significant insight into the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the biology of the disorder, potential risk factors, and possible interventions. These articles were the top selections from a pool of 63 peer-reviewed articles published in 2009 that were nominated by the committee to reflect the most important work in biomedical and services research for ASD during the year--work that is critical to understanding the disorder and addressing the needs of people with ASD and their families. Articles appear in alphabetical order by first author. A full reference list is included at the end of the document.
