The SMART (School Medical Autism Review) Team consists of community service providers who have the experience and passion for supporting local families. The SMART team will make recommendations or referrals to a Certified Center of Excellence (COE) Provider who is able to evaluate and provide an Autism diagnosis if one is warranted.
How to Make a Referral
Anyone can make a referral to the SMART Team for a person 21 years of age or younger, including self referral and parent referrals. There is no cost to families for this service. (If you are from an agency/school district/medical office etc. and are referring a family to the SMART Team, we ask that you please inform the family about the referral prior to sending it in, thank you.)

What Happens After a Referral?
After a referral is made, the SMART Team will contact the person who made the referral to collect some more information. The parent or guardian will need to fill out a SMART Team Packet and people close to the person who was referred (such as their teacher, daycare provider, doctor, or family member) will need to fill out a short questionnaire about the person's behaviors and characteristics.
