• Dissemination/implementation of clinically validated interventions
• Behavioral, cognitive, and other non-pharmacological therapies for ASD core symptoms or to alleviate co-occurring conditions
• Pharmacological, genetic, and other biological treatments for ASD core symptoms or to alleviate co-occurring conditions
• Improve diagnosis and access to services across the life span
• Interventions promoting success in key transitions to adulthood for individuals living with ASD
• Healthcare provider-focused training or tools to improve healthcare delivery for individuals with ASD across the life span and the continuum of care (i.e., primary care, urgent/emergent care, and disaster relief)
• Cultural, socioeconomic, and gender factors in diagnosis, treatment efficacy, delivery, and access to services
• Understanding heterogeneity in treatment response
