Studies in this subcategory evaluate issues of caregiver stress and measures of quality of life for individuals with ASD and their families, as well as assess programs to help parents navigate the service system after their child receives an ASD diagnosis. It also surveys safety issues for those with autism, including wandering and bullying.
Graph: The Practitioner training subcategory in Question 5 dwarfed the other four categories, accounting for 74% of the funding for this question. Services utilization and access followed with 13% of the funding, and Efficacious and cost-effective service delivery accounted for 9%. Only 3% of funding was designated for projects related to Family well-being and safety, and even less (1%) for Community inclusion programs.
