Nonprofit Organization Invests $4M into Early Identification Initiative During COVID

Act Early COVID-19 Response Teams from 43 States and Territories to Receive One-Year Grants

In an effort to ensure that children with suspected developmental disabilities don’t fall through the cracks during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the Association of University Centers on Disabilities has invested over $4M in their Act Early Network to help identify cases of autism.  The Act Early Network has organized specific Act Early COVID-19 Response Teams throughout the country. The goal of these teams is to not only diagnose at-risk children but to strengthen their resilience skills, improve their behaviors, and provide resources to their families.
