The Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Toddler Initiative
The Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Toddler Initiative will expand on the work conducted by the National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders (NPDC-ASD) funded by the Office of Special Education Programs. The ASD Toddler Initiative will develop new materials and modify existing processes to support the use of evidence-based practices for young children (birth-3) and for their families.
There are two components to this initiative:
- development of early intervention materials and processes and
- field-testing the toddler model in a small number of early intervention programs.
