Org you can either download the 100 days kit or, if she was diagnosed within the last 6 months, call them (i think it's 1-800-autism2) and ask for a hard copy. If you speak with them, tell them if you want to pick up the kit at your nearest fedex or if you want it mailed. The kit guides you as to how to get your child the services she needs.
