State ASD Demonstration Program  

The purpose of the project is to establish ASD regional resource centers throughout New Mexico to better address needs. New Mexico is a large rural state with a culturally diverse population; challenges include the ability to provide appropriate services, lack of provider expertise, funding of services and coordination of services across state systems. The goals and objectives support regional needs and provide information, training and other supports. When appropriate, telehealth technology is utilized to reach rural New Mexico. This project also supports participation in NM's Autism Oversight Team to provide discharge planning and insure community supports for indiviudals with ASD receiving residential treatment.
