Joann Migyanka, professor in the Department of Communication
Disorders, Special Education, and Disability Services, collaborated to develop a bedside point-of-care tool for
Autism Spectrum Disorder as a member of the
Emergency Medicine Practice Committee of the American College of Emergency

emergency physicians, emergency medicine residents, and medical students. ACEP promotes
the highest quality of emergency care and is the leading advocate for emergency
physicians, their patients, and the public. The ACEP continually strives
to improve the quality of emergency medical services.
ACEP’s Point-of-Care tools are transforming care at the bedside.
The field’s top experts and
thought-leaders are recruited to develop tools that ACEP members can trust and
deploy in the clinical setting. The evidence-based, clinical content provided
in these tools ensures that clinicians are providing the best possible care to
the patients in the emergency department.
The ASD tool was developed by members of the Emergency Medicine
Practice Committee, September 2019 and reviewed by the ACEP Board of Directors,
