From the Introduction and Purpose, here’s a brief description of what you can expect: “The Infant & Toddler Connection of Virginia is committed to working closely with families of young children with ASD to provide individualized supports and services that help families promote the development of their children. This guidance document has been developed to serve as a resource for early intervention practitioners (e.g., service coordinators, educators, speech language pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists), family members, and other service providers (e.g., medical personnel) who work with infants or toddlers who have signs of or who have been diagnosed with ASD. Information is presented in this document that relates to the early identification of young children with ASD as well as their progression through Virginia’s early intervention process.”
