New State Grantee Community of Learners Kicks-Off!

December 22, 2016

SPHARC, in partnership with HRSA, recently held an October in-person kick-off meeting in Washington, DC for the new Autism Community of Learners state grantee cohort. Grantees include:


  • Delaware
  • Rhode Island
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin


This meeting helped lay the ground work for national partner and peer-to-peer support around grantee activities for the project period, which focus on implementation three key evidence-based/informed strategies: Shared Resource, Family Navigator and Telemedicine/Telehealth. The community currently has access to their new team SharePoint site to facilitate resource sharing and peer learning. They will also be participating in monthly technical assistance calls that cater to grantee needs by providing access to experts and national partners, as well as a forum to discuss successes and best practices with one another.

To learn more about each grantee's work, check out a new article: Implementing Evidence-Based/Informed Practices: Snapshots from the New Autism Community of Learners that will be published in AMCHP's upcoming November/December 2016 issue of PULSE: Evidence-Based/Informed Practice.
