This program provides grants to support the implementation of innovative, evidence-informed strategies to integrate care at a system-level within a state for children and youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities (DD), with a special emphasis on medically underserved populations (based on poverty, rural geographic location, and/or populations that experience health disparities). The program goal is to improve access to a coordinated, comprehensive state system of services that leads to early diagnosis and entry into services for children with ASD/DD within the state and their families.

The purpose and objectives of this program will be accomplished by implementing the following strategies:

  1. Family navigation: Increasing family navigation services to improve communication between families and primary and specialty providers; link children with/at risk for ASD/DD to diagnostic evaluations, ASD/DD services, and community resources; and provide education to families of children with/at risk for ASD/DD to improve self-efficacy in navigating the system of care for children with/at risk for ASD/DD
  2. Provider education: Providing education, training, and technical assistance to providers, and community based-organizations providing services to ASD/DD on improving care for children with/at risk for ASD/DD through a learning community

Eligible applicants include any domestic public or private entity, including faith-based and community-based organizations, Tribes, and tribal organizations.
