Building Bridges: Improving Access to Timely and Appropriate Services for Children with ASD/DD and their Families Evaluation

The Building Bridges evaluation team works with project staff to assess program activities, as well as to facilitate the implementation of a capacity-building, quality improvement process based on data-driven decision-making. The evaluation design uses an embedded, participative approach to examine ongoing efforts to change policy and practice, and an empowerment model for facilitating the development of the quality improvement process.
