Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) services

Children with ASD are eligible for EI services based on their diagnosis. The Department of Public Health (DPH) has approved 15 Specialty Service Provider (SSP) agencies that EI programs may contract with. EI service coordinators discuss SSP services with families. If the family is interested, they follow a referral process to one or more of the approved SSPs for Autism.

Services SSPs for Autism provide to children and families:

  • Direct services from a team of specialists providing home-based Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention
  • Assessments and treatment planning
  • Parent training
  • Consultation and training for early intervention staff
  • Co-visits with EI professionals
