Systemwide Solutions for Developmental-Behavioral Concerns

A new article in Pediatrics proposes that every U.S. state needs: 1) a family-friendly, screening and care coordination entity, 2) comprehensive, tiered, and equitable assessments for "at-risk" or referred children, 3) universal access to high-quality early learning or preschool programs, and 4) continuous accountability for the early detection process from birth to 5 years, and this includes an outcome-based metric for kindergarten readiness. Leaders in health, education, and social service sectors must boldly address our nation's capacity crisis in a system-wide manner.

It Takes a Village to Raise the Bar on Early Autism Identification and Referral

The Utah Regional LEND program is tackling the problem of low identification rates for autism in children under 3 years. Within our five-state LEND, one state, Utah, has been part of the CDC/ADDM autism prevalence studies for several years. Although Utah's prevalence rate is always one of the highest, only 33% of children with autism are identified in medical or educational records before age 3. To change this statistic, URLEND trainees worked across organizational and agency boundaries to create a statewide Network for Early Autism Response.
