Act Early Connecticut
The Goal of the Act Early Connecticut Team
The Connecticut team developed the following overarching goal during the summit:
In order to assure valued life outcomes, all of Connecticut’s diverse families (urban, suburban and rural) and other stakeholders will be aware of the early signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder and have knowledge about, and access to, evidenced based, individualized, and timely screening, diagnostic assessment and interventions as implemented by a competent work force and funded, coordinated system of care.
The team decided to focus on two main areas to achieve this goal: developing best practice guidelines and raising awareness.
