National Medical Home Autism Initiative

The National Medical Home Autism Initiative was founded as a cooperative agreement by the federal Maternal Child Health Bureau and was a national technical assistance, resource and advocacy project designed to promote methods that improved the capacity of the medical home and early intervention community to identify, appropriately serve and integrate children with autism into their communities.

The primary purpose of the project was to identify and demonstrate how principles of the medical home can be applied to achieve early identification and intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders.
