Poster describes initiative to improve access to timely autism diagnosis and services by (1) offering medical assessments for autism in underserved Delaware in the Part C early intervention system, and (2) providing an assessment report that can smooth the transition to school for children diagnosed. In a period of 20 months, over 100 children received autism assessments in Part C. Many of those families pursued evaluations for school-based service eligibility.
