2023 – This Is Your Year!

We want 2023 to be all about network and engagement while supporting the goals outlined in the Comprehensive Plan. Let’s create a vision board for 2023!

To help brainstorm, here is something to start with:

  • How can we make IIACC meetings work for you?
  • What do you want IIACC meetings to look like to be supportive and engaging?
  • How do you want to engage?
  • Who do you want to see at next meetings? (could be specific groups or a generic group, like first responders)

Instructions – what you can add to the board (but do not limit yourselves!):

  • Your thoughts
  • Images that highlight your thoughts
  • Favorite quotes

Comprehensive Plan

Activity: Inclusive & Accessible Language

Revision considerations to date:

  • Shortened sentences, e.g., 2 sentences at 4 and 7 words vs. 1 sentence at 18 words.
  • Switching longer words with their shorter synonyms •Use of active voice vs passive voice
  • Use of simple (e.g., built) vs perfect tenses (e.g., has been built)
  • Removal of unnecessary adverbs and adjectives
  • CHALLENGE: Flesch-Kincaid grade level is still around 10 due to the nature of the text (Readability scores from Readable)


  • In small groups review the original and updated language. Pay particular attention to the problematic sentences (highlighted)
  • Offer your suggestions
  • Share highlights with a large group

New Resources on

Based on the recommendations from the September meeting, we have created:

ASD & Justice System section:

Legal Resources Activity: Recommendations

Help us add info to Information Network (links, titles, or even just ideas)

  • If a person with ASD came across a legal problem, where should they look for support?
  • Information, resources or tools that you think would be particularly helpful for public safety and law enforcement personnel

Setting New Trajectory

Step 1: In small group, use Urgent Important Matrix to add goals that have to be addressed sooner rather than later, which need more info or planning, and which may disappear once others are addressed?

Step 2: Let’s discuss together as a LARGE GROUP to reach consensus for our action plan and select top 3 goals that we can continue implementing!

Charting Goal Trajectory

  • Step 1: As a large group, we selected goal(s) from Urgent and Important section to practice charting the course
  • Step 2: Let’s now work in Jamboard to brainstorm the ideal state for this goal, how to reach it, and how to prevent negative events that may become an obstacle to reach our goal. Also, think how we can measure our success
  • Step 3: As a large group, we will discuss and chart the trajectory for our goal based on your brainstorming.
