Mission
Act Early Indiana promotes awareness of healthy child development, teaches parents the appropriate developmental milestones and helps promote early detection for autism awareness.
Program Description
The website has resources to help families understand the early signs of ASD, locate services, and find ABA providers in Indiana

The Act Early Indiana program is made up of three components:

Health education campaign That promotes awareness of:
  • healthy developmental milestones in early childhood
  • the importance of tracking each child’s development
  • the importance of acting early if there are concerns
Act Early Initiative  That works with state, territorial, and national partners to improve early childhood systems by:
  • Enhancing collaborative efforts to improve screening and referral to early intervention services
  • Supporting the work of Act Early Ambassadors to promote "Learn the Signs. Act Early." messages and tools and improve early identification efforts in their state
Research and evaluation  That improves campaign materials and implementation activities and increases our understanding of the factors that influence early identification and referral.
Financial
The website is a collaboration with Riley Child Development Center at IU School of Medicine, The Indiana Resource Center for Autism, The Arc of Indiana and the Autism Society of Indiana as part of a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "Learn the Signs, Act Early" program.
