“This invaluable resource should empower caregivers with the confidence that they are focusing their financial and emotional resources on the treatments that are most likely to be successful.”
Dissemination / National Standards Project
National standards of practice can guide stakeholders toward effective responses to autism. The standards also give policy-makers the tools they need to ensure that effective, scientifically sound treatment programs receive crucial funding.
The National Autism Center is disseminating the National Standards Report in a technical manual through broad web-based distribution. The findings will also be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Due to high demand, we are now making the National Standards Report available for purchase through our on-line bookstore.
Additional dissemination projects include:
- NEW! A Parent’s Guide to Autism and Evidence-based Practice, a comprehensive manual for families with criteria for selecting evidence-based services and programs that have been proven effective and are backed by scientific research. The manual is now available for download or purchase.
- Evidence-Based Practice and Autism in the Schools, a manual for public school systems outlining specific evidence-based program components, procedures, and implementation strategies. The manual is available for download or purchase.
- Coming soon: Published recommendations for physicians on counseling families with newly diagnosed children.
- Professional training in how to implement the national standards.
We invite you to view and share an eCard announcing the National Standards Report!
