Autism Services Initiative for Adults

DBHDD and the Emory Autism Center are partnering to improve Georgia’s community-based infrastructure for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Georgia families have said that it is hard to find high-quality developmental disability care for adults living with autism. This often results in costly and inefficient use of emergency services. The partnership between Emory and the state aims to improve the quality and effectiveness of services for adults with ASD, so that they have easier access to the proper type of care.
