With the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), parents and service providers must work collectively for effective care delivery. As such, in addition to individual work with families, I have been devoted to the evolution of the HANDS in Autism training model that aims to: 1) facilitate local capacity in service delivery; 2) bridge multiple environments (i.e., educational, medical, home, community); and 3) mentor various personnel in data-driven strategies to support individuals with ASD and related disorders in achieving their full potential.
