Abstract

Part C early intervention (EI) providers are at the front line of service provision for children under 3 years old with developmental delays or disabilities. As such, they can play a key role in both the early detection of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and the provision of ASD-specialized treatment. Focus groups were conducted with 25 EI providers from three agencies in a Northwestern U.S. county to understand their role in the identification of ASD and communication about ASD concerns to families. Results revealed the tension that providers experience between maintaining a positive and supportive relationship with families and raising the issue of possible ASD. Cultural influences affecting ASD care and suggestions for desired resources were also discussed.
