Employment is about more than simply earning a paycheck – it influences quality of life, independence, and wellness. Historically, employment outcomes for adults with autism are poor. The U.S. Vocational Rehabilitation system (VR) is designed to provide support to states for implementation of services to assist people with disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep employment. VR data allow us to examine some outcomes for those with autism compared to their peers.
To make a difference, research must reach those who need it. The National Autism Indicators Report series presents our research findings in a clearly communicated, open-access, online format to speed the delivery of information to decision-makers while maintaining very high standards of scientific credibility.
The mission of Spectrum Arts is to function as a dynamic online resource of artistic programming for individuals on the autism spectrum and to develop a cooperative network of artistic professionals and organizations serving these individuals.
This site was launched in early February. Currently, it lists several arts organizations across the country that offer arts programming specifically created for individuals on the spectrum and their families. It offers a calendar of events sponsored by these organizations. The website also has a resource page listing materials related to artistic and creative practices for those with ASD.
The site has received support and cooperation from Chicago Children’s Theatre’s Red Kit Project, The Miracle Project, Stages Theatre Company, and five other theatre arts organizations.

Each year, the IACC releases its annual list of scientific advances that represent significant progress in the field. The 20 studies selected have given new insight into the underlying biology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and potential risk factors, examined the state of the science in early screening and diagnosis, and evaluated promising early intervention strategies. The advances also address health outcomes for children and adults with autism, and issues related to education, transition to adulthood, and employment. The 2015 Summary of Advances provides short, plain language summaries of the top research breakthroughs selected by the IACC from a pool of research articles nominated by the members. Articles are grouped according to the topics represented by the questions of the IACC Strategic Plan for ASD Research. Citations for the articles selected for the Summary of Advances, as well as a complete listing of those nominated, are included at the end of the document.
