This partnership between MMI-LEND, the Nebraska Act Early State Autism Team coalition of organizations, and Boys Town Institute for Child Health Improvement will increase public awareness of ASD, leading to more effective and enhanced early identification of children with ASD. Customization and distribution of the Learn The Signs. Act Early. materials will educate the public and strengthen relation-ships between families and needed services. This project will promote increased recognition of the purpose and mission of the State Autism Team and its impact statewide. Finally, implementation of the project activities will strengthen coordination and collaboration among State Autism Team members.
