New Resources Focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder

The MCH Library at Georgetown University, with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau, released a new knowledge path and set of resource briefs about autism spectrum disorder.

Released in time for Autism Awareness Month in April, the knowledge path directs readers to a selection of resources about ASD screening, diagnosis, treatment, care, and impact on family life. The knowledge path includes tools for health care practices; training; improving state systems and services; research; and finding data and statistics, journal articles, reports, and other materials. The knowledge path aims to help health professionals, program administrators, policymakers, and researchers learn more about ASD; to integrate what they know into their work in new ways to improve screening, diagnosis, treatment, and care; for program development; and to locate information to answer specific questions. The knowledge path is available at
