AND these are point in time data only about children with an IFSP.... Birth cohort is closer to 10-11%
Question please. Will we be able to print this presentation?
The slides and a video archive of the webinar will be sent directly to all registrants!
Oh thank you! That would be wonderful. So much terrific information! I can't keep it all in my head :)
People are spending so much money to send children with disabilities to preschool....
Please let us know if you have questions for our presenters from the ECTA Center and DaSy-all of our presenters will remain on the line for a Q&A session following the presentation.
can you share the memorandum of agreement?
We are rolling out a deputy ambassador program in Texas, good to hear it has worked well in RI! What supports do you all offer deputy ambassadors and how do you keep them engaged?
do you only use deputy ambassadors with early intervention or with other programs too?
do the trainings happen yearly to account for staff that leave who may have been ambassadors
Nice roadmap for providers!
Any child can be diagnosed with autism at a young age, mainly by the age of two depending on the diagnosis?
can this poster be shared?
How about reaching out to Family Practice providers?
Many of our doctor's offices right now are not doing 'waiting rooms' per se, but having families wait in the car. Have to get creative right now to still get this info to them!
Ben, they were included as well.
It's impossible that a four-year old child with autism should eat lots of fruit and veggies, not junk food? Correct?
We are getting close to the end of the presentation, please get your questions in for our presenters!
Question for the Rhode Island presenters: What types of supports (e.g., counseling, parent support group, help with referrals to autism specialty service providers) do the EI Programs offer for families who have recently received an ASD diagnosis for their child? How have those supports changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic?
Is anyone evaluating how parents are feeling about coaching and online EI services at this time?
Question: What was the response from the outpatient primary care practices/providers to the materials and home grown materials provided? part 2 of the question, what was included in the follow up to 75 practices?
are these screening tools something that parents can use as well?
I would love to receive a copy of the MOU as well.
Great family support and education provided by RI after a diagnosis is made, who funds the 5 and 8 week programs family voices?
Great question, Jennifer Z. The specialized services and training courses offered through The Autism Project in Rhode Island sound amazing!
Jennifer Z. The Autism project is a non-profit and they have aggressive fundraising efforts to keep things very inexpensive and free for families when possible.
I worked on the list- if you want more information
can you post the link for the table of remote administration tools
Thank you so much! Great resources
Thank you very much!
