TODDLER TRACKS OVERVIEW
Toddler Tracks, a CARES Act-funded program, is completely free to families and medical professionals. The program was developed by medical and behavioral specialists provides parents/caregivers and healthcare professionals with information and resources to assist with early assessment and intervention for infants and toddlers. It will also enable access to online treatment services.
50% or more of young children with autism do not receive treatment due to gaps in access to diagnosis and treatment. Each year, this lack of timely access to services has a crushing impact on hundreds of thousands of families. Gaps in access are even greater in rural areas. However, this need not be the case. The Toddler Tracks program will help close the gap for these children who are awaiting access to services.
The program will launch in concert with the fourteenth annual World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, 2021. The program will then be promoted to families and healthcare professionals nationally via the Telehealth Resource Center network.
Toddler Tracks is made possible through CARES Act Funding Grant #GA5RH37460.
