Hearing tomorrow on Examining the Federal Response to Autism Spectrum Disorders

19 May

The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform through the subcommittee on Government Operations will be holding a hearing tomorrow (May 20): Examining the Federal Response to Autism Spectrum Disorders

Testifying will be:

Thomas R. Insel, M.D.
Director, National Institute of Mental Health
Chair, Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee

Mr. Michael K. Yudin
Acting Assistant Secretary, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services
U.S. Department of Education

Marcia Crosse, Ph.D.
Director, Health Care
U.S. Government Accountability Office

Likely this is based partly on the Government Accountability Office report last year: Better Data and More Coordination Needed to Help Avoid the Potential for Unnecessary Duplication and the introduction of the reauthorization bill for the Combating Autism Act.
