The conference will provide a unique opportunity to exchange national and state information on early identification, developmental screening, referral and response strategies and time for state teams to enhance state autism plans. Each state invited up to fourteen stakeholders committed to early identification, developmental screening, and referral and response activities. Breakout sessions are woven in to the agenda to allow time for state teams to gather and identify two to four strategies and outcomes to enhance their state autism plan.
