The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP), in partnership with the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), is pleased to announce the release of the interactive e-Learning Module, "Autism CARES Act 101." This self-paced module addresses key facets of the Autism Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education, and Support (CARES) Act, including grassroots and legislative origins, how it has evolved since 2006, and resulting federally-funded programming. It also delves into the impact that the Autism CARES Act has had on services and systems that support autistic individuals and their families. This free resource was developed not only to help orient CARES grantees, but also to educate public health professionals and leaders, state/local Title V staff, students, policymakers, and other stakeholders –  including but not limited to those working with individuals, families, and communities impacted by autism and other developmental disabilities.
