Description

CMS contracted with IMPAQ International and Abt to conduct a state practices study to assess the implementation of evidence-based/promising practices through the lens of state experience. The resulting Report on State Services to Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), released in April 2011, summarizes the current state of ASD-related services in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Indiana, Maine, Missouri, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The report describes the types of services and supports provided by state and local governments; the sources of funding for programs; and the policy, staffing and implementation issues to be addressed to effectively serve people with ASD.
