As part of its strategic plan, INSAR has set a goal of ensuring that autism research has a broad impact on society, reflected in a strategic initiative to “disseminate science-based knowledge to inform research priorities, policy, professional practice, and public understanding.” To this end, INSAR has committed annual funds to support a 1-2 day meeting of scientists, thought leaders, stakeholders, and policy makers to discuss a topic that:
- is of importance to the quality of life of those affected by autism;
- has been studied rigorously; and
- has significant implications for policy and/or practice.
The purpose of the meeting is for attendees to present and discuss relevant research regarding this topic and, following the meeting, create an INSAR Policy Brief, which will summarize the research relevant to this topic and serve as an informational resource document for a diverse set of stakeholders, including INSAR members, those affected by autism, policy makers, practitioners, and the public.
Deadline for submission of proposals is February 1, 2018.
