Resource for Parents of Children with ASD

The Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland has recently begun offering a new resource to families with children on the Autism spectrum. They are currently offering free developmental screenings for young siblings of children with ASD. Screenings are available for children between 5 and 10 months of age. This initiative was implemented following a wealth of research that indicates that 1 in 5 siblings of children with autism also have autism, and that early identification and intervention is accurate and effective. Please feel free to share this important opportunity with the families you work with!
