A firm understanding of typical child development will aid practitioners in creating developmentally appropriate treatment plan goals and objectives. Clinicians also need to work with families to disseminate critical child developmental milestones. Information about child development, specifically early warning signs need to be supplied to parents so that they can be prepared for visits with their child’s health care provider to request referrals if necessary. While efforts for early detection are admirable there is still restricted access to services including a confirmed diagnosis and access to services, especially in rural communities and for certain demographic groups. Delayed diagnoses and access to treatment both have clinical implications that will be discussed. Finally, treatment planning needs to be evidence-based and should be linked to established curriculum and literature.

Within this presentation, participants will:

    1. (1) be provided with an overview of key developmental milestones from 9 months to 5 years of age
    1. (2) be introduced to literature that outlines the barriers to services based on several different demographics
    1. (3) examine the clinical implications of delayed access to services
    1. (4) gain access to a review of common rating scales and diagnostic tools used in the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
