Policy Power Lunch: Policy, Practice, and the Autism CARES Evaluation

December 1, 2021 12 – 1PM EST

Policy, Practice, and the Autism CARES Evaluation

For approximately a decade, Insight Policy Research evaluated Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) grant programs funded through the Autism CARES Act. Grant programs funded through this legislation enable training for developmental behavioral pediatricians and other future leaders in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities; funded research related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) interventions; support states seeking to build their infrastructure related to ASD; and bolster national resource centers charged with ASD training and coordination.

Join the Policy Impact Project team and Rachel Gaddes from Insight Policy Research for a discussion about the Autism CARES evaluation and the broader field of policy research. Rachel will present study results, share broader reflections on the importance of policy research and validating the effectiveness of federally-supported programs, and discuss ways evaluation evidence can be disseminated and shared with a range of audiences. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
