Missouri Publishes First Guidelines for ASD Screening, Diagnosis, Assessment

For the past 18 months, a statewide group of professionals and parents has worked collaboratively to develop and publish Autism Spectrum Disorders: Missouri Best Practices for Screening, Diagnosis, and Assessment. The project is sponsored by the Thompson Foundation for Autism and the Division of Developmental Disabilities, Missouri Department of Mental Health.

Driven by the knowledge that children’s outcomes and families’ lives are greatly improved with earlier diagnosis and treatment of ASDs, one of the Initiative’s key goals was to work from the most current research to facilitate the critical first steps of screening, diagnosis, and assessment. Tailored specifically for Missouri, the Guidelines are intended to help clinicians, families, educators and service providers with informed decision-making.

The Guidelines can be downloaded at no cost at
