Shift emphasis from crisis management to early intervention

Develop mechanisms to ensure providers meet qualification and certification standards

Future Plans and Concluding Statement

The Consortium will continue to meet in an advisory capacity to further refine their recommendations and to continue work with the SIAC.  Training has been identified as a crucial issue for ASD and future endeavors for the Consortium will focus on developing recommendation for a systematic training plan.  Long term goals also include addressing transitioning issues for youth and services for adults.
