The goal of this project is to improve developmental outcomes and school readiness of infants and toddlers at risk for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families by adapting an existing empirically supported practice—the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM)—for use in Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) intervention systems in low-income, ethnically diverse community settings.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 4LD. Support at least five community-based studies that assess the effectiveness of interventions and services in broader community settings by 2015. Such studies may include comparative effectiveness research studies that assess the relative effectiveness of: o Different and/or combined medical, pharmacological, nutritional, behavioral, service-provision, and parent- or caregiver-implemented treatments; o Scalable early intervention programs for implementation in underserved, low-resource, and low-literacy populations; and o Studies of widely used community intervention models for which extensive published data are not available. Outcome measures should include assessment of potential harm as a result of autism treatments, as well as positive outcomes. IACC Recommended Budget: $37,500,000 over 5 years.
