Our latest annual report gives an outline of the progress the project has made over the course of the 2016-2017 fiscal year. The report includes key highlights and milestones, as well as outlining barriers we have encountered and recommendations on addressing them. Our community-based diagnostic partnerships continue to lay the groundwork for providing families with access to an early and timely diagnostic system. Through persistent efforts and a willingness to overcome barriers, the teams involved with ADEP have lowered the average age of diagnosis in Ohio to 30 months of age, compared to the national average age of 4 years old. With this dedication, teams continue to change the ways in which families can receive an early diagnosis of ASD in the state of Ohio.
