You can help us serve more children, adolescents, and young adults with autism - along with their families - ensuring their access to the training, support, and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential. A few examples are:

Toys and materials. For our intervention and summer-camp programs.
Clinical scholarships. For family consultation visits with our autism experts.
Workshops. Support innovative programs for parents, educators, and healthcare professionals.
Behavioral consultation. Short-term therapy to address goals in areas such as sleep, self-control, and toileting.
Screening and diagnosis. For a family - the first step in changing a child's life.
Training fellowships. To prepare future professionals for clinical and research careers in autism.
Pilot research. Seed funding for novel autism research initiatives.

The double match!

An anonymous donor has issued a matching challenge. We can match* your gift if you make an outright gift or pledge. If your employer also matches gifts, your gift will be matched twice! If you have already made a gift to the UW Autism Center this year, we thank you and hope you will please consider an additional gift and pledge to take advantage of this opportunity.
