A new federal report finds that fewer dollars are going toward studying services and the needs of those on the spectrum as they age.

Spending on autism research across the country fell from $348.6 million in 2010 to $299.9 million in 2011 before rebounding a bit to $331.9 million in 2012, according to a new report from the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, a federal advisory panel comprised of government officials and members of the autism community.
