- There’s pressing need for services to support the rapidly growing population of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
- Direct observation of the child remains the gold standard for diagnosis, assessment, and treatment planning.
- The literature supports early screening for a faster diagnosis, with timely eligibility for services, and ultimately early intervention the child’s important formative years.
Despite this literature, many rural communities that are also characterized by low socio-economic status (SES) are marked by lack of access to autism-specific expertise among professionals in mental health, primary care, and education (Belfer & Saxena, 2006; Marcin, Ellis, Mawis, et al., 2004; Nesbitt, Rogers, Rich, et al., 2006). Even in urban communities where services are more widely available, timely access to diagnostic and intervention services is often hampered by long waiting lists at centers focused on diagnosis and treatment (Hayden, 2011).
