The "Comprehensive Archive of Autism Legislation" (CAAL) project is an initiative of the Autism and Neurodivergency Advocacy Association, directed by two neurodivergent researchers. This digital archive seeks to provide an exhaustive record of the historical development of autism law, highlighting the contributions of activists and advocacy groups. CAAL has compiled a variety of laws, regulations, and initiatives pertaining to autism and related disorders by conducting extensive research and analyzing legislation. This database is organized chronologically and provides a thorough comprehension of the context and significance of each legislative milestone. In addition to documenting legislation, in the future CAAL aims to amplify the voices of individuals, groups, and advocacy organizations that have played crucial roles in shaping autism law. By highlighting the influence and contributions of these activists, this initiative intends to honor their invaluable work and inspire future advocacy efforts. CAAL goes beyond a simple historical description - it analyzes the efficacy and results of specific legislations. CAAL's digital platform includes infographics and visualizations that are interactive to increase user engagement and comprehension. These features facilitate exploration of the gathered data and enable a deeper understanding of the legislative process. In addition, users are encouraged to contribute their own perspectives and insights, which encourages collaboration and advocacy. CAAL's ultimate objective is to increase autism awareness, promote acceptance, and facilitate inclusion. By recognizing past achievements, addressing current problems, and imagining a better future, the initiative aims to break down barriers and contribute to the development of a more inclusive society.
