Structure, Use and Expenditures for Autism Services

The major aim of this study is to identify the services that families with autistic children use, the sources that are used to pay for the services, and satisfaction with autism services. The SRU consulted with researchers at the UNC Sheps Center for Health Services Research on overall study design and instrument development. At the end of data gathering, the SRU completed 288 telephone interviews with parents.
