Regional Autism Assistance Program

Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program (RAP)
The mission of the Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program (RAP) is to assure community-based clinical consultation, multidisciplinary care planning recommendations, and family-to-family support for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families.

CHSC combines resources from the State of Iowa, the Iowa Department of Education, the Iowa Department of Human Services, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to administer the Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) program "Learn the Signs. Act Early" aims to improve early identification of children with autism and other developmental disabilities so children and families can get the services and support they need. Free resources are available here.
