A new program was funded for the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to provide intensive behavioral services to families. This study assisted DDD in identifying children at risk of being placed in institutions so that they may receive preventive services. Important factors for risk included caregiver stress and lack of backup caregivers, as well as autism combined with problem behaviors.
