We Help People And Families Affected By Autism

Autism Care Team (ACT) Program

We are here for you!

Navigating the autism world can be complex and
overwhelming. If you are a parent seeking answers
or support…we can help.

Autism Care Team (ACT) Program

Nothing can replace the connection made between a new parent and one who has experience, resources and help to offer, and time to just listen and reassure. Our Family Support Providers (FSPs) are parents of children with autism who work one-on -one with families on an ongoing basis to provide an array of services and supports.

Together with families the FSPs will:
• Meet regularly in-person or through video chat
• Help develop a plan which includes needed services and supports, such as early intervention, therapies, specialty care, respite care, and others
• Help to make informed decisions about services
• Make connections to parent education programs
• Offer follow-up according to need
• Coordinate care among providers and agencies

 Getting Started in ACT

ACT Program services are covered by Medicaid and through a grant from the Division of Prevention and Behavioral Health.

The ACT program requires a referral from a licensed provider.  That can be your pediatrician, a clinical psychologist, a licensed clinical social worker, nurse practitioner or others.

Once we receive the referral, our Intake Coordinator will contact you to get some information and connect you with your own Family Support Provider (FSP).  Your FSP will then contact you to set up a time to meet or video chat that works for you! 

If you have any questions about ACT or about getting a referral, contact our Intake Coordinator at 302-224-6020 x 219
