Access to On-Time Intervention Project

The Access to On-Time Intervention project is a collaborative effort between the UW Autism Center and the Haring Center for Inclusive Education, bringing together the expertise of these two organizations to improve children’s access to clinical resources when autism symptoms first emerge. Starting early with high-quality intervention can lead to better outcomes. But children often receive a diagnosis of autism after 4 years of age even though, in most cases, it is possible to diagnose ASD by 24 months of age. This project will establish a framework to help families navigate the complicated healthcare system and help community service providers offer better autism services to children in need. We are so grateful to the Sunderland family highlighted in this article and video who provided the resources to make this project possible!
