Communities will access and implement necessary high-quality, evidence-based services and supports that maximize quality of life and health across the lifespan for all people with ASD and their families.
  1. On the last call, the group suggested adding the text in italics.
  2. Also, does the working group want to further examine the word “necessary?” The Question 6 group is considering changing the word “necessary” in their aspirational goal to “appropriate” to avoid potential issues with determining what constitutes “necessary.” Or the word could be eliminated.
