Low Incidence Disabilities: The purpose of this project is to provide masters level preparation to 38 students to serve infants and toddlers who experience autism, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), and severe disabilities, and their families, in rural Alaska. In addition through collaboration with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and the State of Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (DEED), related service providers and early interventionists will be supported to build their capacity to provide family-centered services to young children who experience low incidence.
