The Intervention Planning grant to build and team and intervention to support caregivers of children with autism.
Key Facilitators This intervention is planned to be implemented within families attending the child neurology and psychiatry clinics at MTRH, as well as the autism hub sites in Indiana. With Drs. Oyungu and Wangeci leading the project in Kenya and Drs. Becca McNally-Keehn and Mandy Rispoli in Indiana, we have excellent support and facilitators to implement this intervention on a pilot scale. With the planned future pediatric neurodevelopmental centre at MTRH, there is a high likelihood it can be integrated into clinical care.
