SPHARC Planning Peer to Peer Exchange on Role of Data in Building, and Evaluating Systems of Care for Children and Youth with ASD/DD with New Approaches in Screening, Financing, and Transition

December 10, 2012

AMCHP's State Public Health Autism Resource Center (SPHARC) is tentatively planning to continue its highly successful series of state peer exchange programs in Spring 2013 with a new exchange addressing data and evaluation issues. This peer to peer exchange would provide State Autism Grantee, LEND programs, and research projects the opportunity to talk about how their grants have used to data to plan and build systems of care, implement activities and/or evaluate the impact of their implementation strategies. If your state or grant has an interesting experience to share about data/evaluation in any stage of the process and you would be interested in sharing your experiences, challenges and lessons learned, we would welcome ideas and proposals (including from former grantees). We are looking for both Peer Leaders as well as state teams (must include representative from State Planning or Implementation Grant). For more information, please contact Treeby Brown at AMCHP (tbrown@amchp.org).
