The Interactive Autism Network (IAN) is one of 20 Patient Powered Research Networks (PPRNs) that make up PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network. Together with the other PPRNs, IAN is making a commitment to helping families have access to their electronic health records for their personal use and, potentially, to help speed up autism research.
A new study by researchers at Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York says that more than 250,000 school-age children with autism or other developmental disorders wander away from adult supervision each year, risking their safety.
A new report by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says pediatric health care providers play a critical role in helping children with disabilities obtain appropriate special education and related services from their schools.
