Autism is a complex and challenging disorder. Agencies providing services to individuals with autism and their families are faced with meeting these complex challenges in a variety of different ways across many different settings. In order to insure that these services are provided in a safe and effective way and achieve the best possible outcomes, a comprehensive quality assurance program should be in place. The quality assurance program should provide oversight to areas such as student and consumer outcomes, incidence management, program compliance, consumer and staff safety to name a few. This panel will provide an overview of a comprehensive data based quality assurance program applied within a multi-program autism service delivery agency. Specifically, strategies employed within a childrens school program, an adult services program, in-home family support programs as well as residential group homes will be discussed.
