The September 2023 IIACC meeting covered various topics related to autism awareness, engagement, and innovative service implementation. The meeting was focused on Goal 5 (Successful Youth Transition to Adult Services, Work, and Independence) and Goal 6 (Adequate Equitable Access to Resources, Funding, Inclusive Community, and Basic Living Conditions to Meet Quality of Life Outcomes). We also walked through the IIACC Engagement and Autism Engagement Network (AEN) Updates, the presentation of the Driver of Innovative Service in Implementation (DISI) award, the New Star Services Innovative Pilot Project about creating a Shared Living Companion Model, and a discussion around the goals.
Indiana’s plan to improve conditions for those with autism has been outlined in the Indiana State Comprehensive Plan for Individuals with ASD. Learn more about the Indiana Comprehensive Plan.
