2013 Summary of Advances in Autism Spectrum Disorder Research
Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee
Each year, the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) releases its annual list of scientific advances that represent significant progress in the field. The 20 studies selected have given new insight into the complex causes of autism and potential risk factors, studied clues that could lead to earlier diagnosis, and evaluated promising early intervention strategies. The advances also address the prevalence of ASD both in the United States and internationally, as well as the service needs of people with ASD across the lifespan. The "2013 Summary of Advances" provides short, plain language synopses of the top research breakthroughs selected by the IACC from a pool of peer-reviewed articles nominated by the members. Articles are grouped according to the questions of the "IACC Strategic Plan for ASD Research." Citations for the articles selected for the "Summary of Advances," as well as a complete listing of those nominated, are included at the end of the document.
