The UW Autism Center (UWAC) was founded in 2000 and is one of the first autism centers in the country to provide clinical services, professional training, and internationally recognized research under one roof. Clinically, UWAC provides intervention services, diagnostic evaluations, and program consultation for children from birth through young adulthood with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Services are provided by multi-disciplinary teams that include behavior analysts, educators, physicians, psychologists, and speech language pathologists. A professional training program prepares UW students and community professionals, school districts and agencies to provide direct service to individuals with ASD, and to train and supervise other professionals. The UWAC promotes and supports a vibrant research community through activities such as journal clubs, research rounds, scientific support for researchers and maintaining a comprehensive research database. A focus of the UW Autism Center is to facilitate research collaborations to understand the causes of ASD and to improve outcomes for individuals on the autism spectrum.
