5.L.A. Funding: The recommended budget was met. Significantly more than the recommended minimum budget was allocated to projects specific to this objective.

Progress: This is a very broad objective, and a lot of research is being supported in this area. More work is needed, however, to cover the range of topics addressed in the objective.

Remaining gaps, needs and opportunities: Specifically, the requirement of projects looking at diverse community settings has not been met. Most of the projects listed are not focused on dissemination or may be using a model that is not well-translated to autism. Dissemination should be part of a grant application and this should be rigorously enforced. An opportunity in this area would be to create and support training institutes within existing networks that are focused on implementation and dissemination.
