The Interagency Committee on Autism (ICA) was established in 2016 and is comprised of key stakeholders within the autism community including representatives from various disciplines and agencies, family members of individuals with autism, and a person with ASD.
The ICA works to ensure continued partnership of its members and other groups by sharing information, knowledge and resources with each other, identifying collaborative opportunities to answer community needs, and addressing improvements outlined in the Blueprint for Collective Action.
