Our broader aims are to improve access to care, improve the hospital experiences, build on promising practices, and improve care coordination.
Autism New Jersey’s Advancing Healthcare Initiative seeks to be a collective voice that merges the expertise and needs of individuals with autism and their families, healthcare providers, and behavior analytic providers to successfully advocate for and help implement empirically validated, effective, socially valid, and sustainable improvements that will directly impact the health and quality of life of individuals with autism.
To these ends, our initial priorities include:
Increase Timeliness of Diagnostic Evaluations by Qualified Healthcare Providers
Convene leading developmental pediatricians from across the state to discuss needs, barriers, and potential solutions
