The CAS evolved from discussions over several years at various conferences by individuals committed to high standards of service delivery who also shared a commitment to evidence-based practice. Dissatisfaction was expressed with the lack of suitable conferences for program directors and the poor quality of conference content on ASD service delivery for both staff and directors at existing national and regional conferences.
The primary purpose of the CAS is to bring together executive and program directors who conduct programs for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and who embrace an evidence-based approach to delivering and evaluating services. The goal of the CAS is to create a working network of service providers to share high level information and identify gaps or needs facing service delivery organizations. The focus of activities is an annual conference each January to promote discussion, interaction, and identification of issues and solutions.
To meet the needs of individuals with ASD through improving the effectiveness and quality of service delivery programs.
