HHS Bureau Hosts Webinar With Early Intervention, Autism Focus

Crossposted with Early Years.

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is hosting a webinar today at 2 p.m. ET on Maine officials' attempts to improve early-intervention services in that state through better coordination between doctors and early-childhood care providers.

The hour-long webinar will also feature a discussion about efforts in Massachusetts aimed at providing more early services to young children who may have autism spectrum disorders. The state is trying to cut down on the time that parents have to wait to have their children evaluated by specialists, and is also trying to stay in touch with parents through an email messaging system.

The webinar will be placed in the bureau's archives for those who can't tune in live.
