The Thompson Foundation compliments our support of groundbreaking research and clinical services at the Thompson Center with efforts to positively influence autism-related legislation and education across the nation.
One notable educational effort is Autism Spectrum Disorders: Guide to Evidence-based Interventions. The guide is designed to help families, healthcare providers and educators make informed decisions about selecting and implementing interventions for autism spectrum disorders.
The first of its kind, the publication summarizes six recent nationally recognized systematic research reviews of evidence-based ASD interventions and has garnered positive reviews from professionals from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Autism Speaks.
The guide is a collaborative effort among the Thompson Foundation, the Missouri Department of Mental Health, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and Mercy Children’s Hospital in St. Louis and Springfield, Mo.
Funding for the printing and dissemination of the publication was provided by the Missouri Foundation for Health.
