This presentation is in two (2) parts.

“Coordination of Evaluation and Early Intervention Among Early Childhood Professionals and Diagnosticians” describes quality improvement activities undertaken in Maine to improve early identification and intervention by increasing coordination and communication between medical diagnosticians and early childhood providers.

“Collaborative Efforts to Improve Access and Care for Children at Risk for Autism Spectrum Disorders” focuses on three efforts in Massachusetts designed to improve access and care: (a) approval for reimbursement for developmental screening through insurance companies in MA; (b) a new triage mechanism which has led to decreased wait times for specialty evaluations; and (c) development of an email messaging service for families in the first year following diagnosis.
