Description

This project improves the family professional partnerships with primary care providers. Family advisors are trained and supported to work with doctors. Doctors are provided training and hands-on resources to improve their screening and treatment of persons with ASD. Also, briefing protocols and cultural competency trainings are used to help families and providers navigate the system. The project also focuses on enhancing awareness of medical home principles to interested physicians and working with nonprofit and governmental agencies to increase utilization of Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) funding for children with developmental disabilities.
