This webinar will describe a project aimed to improve access to care for children with ASD/DD, targeting underserved urban, rural, and frontier regions of the State of Colorado. This project involves provider education, capacity building, technical assistance, and direct care. We will review components of this program, reduction in wait list, provider satisfaction, and perception of self-efficacy.
