Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program (RAP)

UPDATED: September 10, 2018

The Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program (RAP) connects families to services for their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). RAP teams use standardized screening tools to identify children at risk for ASD and help families find diagnostic services and are committed to ensuring that all Iowans 0-21 years old with ASD have access to care coordination services and family to family support in their community. All Family Navigators on RAP teams are family members of a child or youth with special health care needs who are able to listen to your concerns and share experiences as someone who has shared similar experiences. RAP serves families statewide and is part of Child Health Specialty Clinics, with multiple regional center locations.
