Enhancing Public Health Surveillance of Autism Spectrum Disorder through the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network

The purpose of this NOFO is to enhance the capacity of surveillance programs to implement a population-based, multiple source surveillance program for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The project will fund sites to participate in the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network

and will enhance surveillance activities at both prior and newly participating sites through two funding components.

Component A is required for all applicants, while applying for Component B funding is optional.

Component A funds surveillance of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) among 4-year-old and 8-year-old children.

Component A activities include:
adhere to standardized ADDM Network methodology; renew or establish agreements for access to BOTH health and education data sources (electronic and paper records); staff training and continued education; report clean, de-identified data with vital records/census linkages to CDC; submit at least two manuscripts; engage partners and stakeholders in activities aimed at increasing use of ADDM data; and create and implement a strategic plan for performance monitoring and evaluation.

Component B funds conducting follow-up at age 16 years of children abstracted for ASD at age 8 years in 2010 and 2012, including collecting data on characteristics, functioning, and educational service delivery (including transition planning).

These data will inform public health strategies to improve identification and services for children with ASD.
