Ad Hoc CO-CANDO Committee

The Colorado Developmental Disabilities Council created its ad hoc Autism Committee on September 22, 2010, in response to a Senate Joint Resolution (SJR10-027) and a recommendation from its Legislative & Public Policy Committee that the Council oversee the implementation of the recommendations of the Colorado Autism Commission. The committee has been renamed as CO-CANDO (Colorado Collaborative for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Options). The CANDO website offers current information about CO-CANDO, its work and outcomes.
