Interactive Autism Network
The Interactive Autism Network (IAN) is a national online autism registry funded by Autism Speaks that is designed to increase the pace of new discoveries about autism. Parents enter information about their child and family by completing online surveys. These questionnaires ask about their child’s history, behaviors, family environment and services received. The Thompson Center is collaborating with IAN to use anonymous data from those who register in Missouri to inform policy makers about ways to improve state services. More information about the IAN registry is available at www.ianproject.org. To learn more about the IAN-MO partnership visit http://thompsoncenter.missouri.edu/news/IANproject.php
