This PA replaces PA-01-051.

The purpose of this program announcement is to encourage grant applications for the
support of research designed to elucidate the diagnosis, epidemiology, etiology,
genetics, treatment, and optimal means of service delivery in relation to Autistic
Disorder ("autism") and autism spectrum disorders (Rett's Disorder, Childhood
Disintegrative Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not
Otherwise Specified, or "Atypical Autism").

This PA is meant to support the broad research goals of the Autism Research Matrix
(http://www.nimh.nih.gov/autismiacc/researchmatrix.pdf). In February 2003,
Congress requested that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) develop a
set of autism research goals and activities for the next several years (House
Report 109-10). Input into this activity included a meeting of autism
investigators with a range of scientific expertise, as well as input from community
members. Preparation for specifying this matrix involved a two-day meeting of an
expert panel of scientists; public presentation and discussion of a draft matrix at
the Autism Summit Conference in Washington DC on November 20, 2003; and adoption of
the matrix by the Federal Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC).
