Grant Information

This website was created as a result of the State Implementation Grant for Improving Services for Maryland Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Developmental Disabilities"(2013-2016) administered by the Parents' Place of Maryland in partnership with the Office for Genetics and People with Special Health Care Needs at the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The overarching goal for this grant is to strengthen the leadership and infrastructure needed to identify Maryland CYSHCN-ASD/DD by 24 months and ensure access to a family-centered medical home and comprehensive, coordinated care; reduce barriers to screening, referral and diagnostic services and increase access to medical homes that coordinate care with pediatric subspecialties; and support the development of family-professional partnerships among CYSHCN-ASD/DD and the system of care.

The American Academy of Pediatrics - Maryland Chapter is a partner on this project.
