The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the “Learn the Signs. Act Early” (LTSAE) campaign in 2004 to educate parents, health care professionals, and child care providers about developmental milestones and the importance of early identification and intervention for children with signs of autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities (ASD/DD). The CSHCS Division has partnered with Cathy Pratt from the Indiana Resource Center for Autism in Bloomington, IN and Stephan Viehweg from the Riley Child Development Center (RCDC) to help lead this initiative in Indiana. The primary goal is to integrate the (LTSAE) materials and messages and continue to support collaboration around Autism early screening, diagnosis, and intervention. The initiative has developed the “Roadmap to Services” brochure for families who are concerned their young child may have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Transition to Adulthood can be a scary topic for families of CYSHCN and also young adults themselves. The Indiana Transition Book - A Book for Me and My Friends will help you with transition planning a little bit at a time.
