The members of the Consortium would like to thank the State Interagency Council for Children’s’ Mental Health and its’ member agencies for the opportunity to provide recommendations on programs and services to the ASD population. Many complex issues challenge the families of children with ASD. They and their children have a variety of needs. The providers, schools and SIAC members have a vested interest in ensuring that those needs are met. For those reasons, it is essential that we continue to work together in collaborative partnerships. The development of the Consortium and the promise of enhanced partnerships have given hope to a better future to children and youth with ASD.
