The ASD Toddler Initiative promotes the use of evidence-based practices with children birth to 3 who have been diagnosed with, or are at risk for ASD. Interventions are provided in a child's natural setting e.g. their home, community, and within family routines and activities.

RI's technical assistance providers are now working with the second group of 3, EI programs. EBP's are also being shared with EI providers through our ASD Resource Group. The Resource group is made up of at least one staff member from each program who receives additional training so they might serve as a resource to their fellow staff members.
