The Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC) provides technical assistance to LENDs and DBPs to better train professionals to utilize valid and reliable screening tools to diagnose or rule out and provide evidence-based interventions for children with ASD and other developmental disabilities. The ITAC website contains news, resources, and information tailored for LENDs and DPBs as well as the medical and public health communities and families of children with ASD/DD. ITAC and its projects were designed in collaboration with federal staff, program directors, and families of children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.
