Happy New Year from the Autism Society of America! This January, our focus is on goal setting, establishing routines for the New Year, and receiving an Autism diagnosis. Our Public Policy resources include the 2023 US House legislative calendar and an opportunity for constituents to contact newly elected Congressional Members.
