6.S.A. Funding: The recommended budget was partially met.

Progress: More than two projects have been funded in this area, though the end goal of determining best practices has not yet been met. Still, this area is moving in the right direction as funding and projects have increased over time.

Remaining gaps, needs and opportunities: There is a great need to develop standardized measures for quality of life for people with ASD, across both range of ability and lifespan.
