Community Engagement

The UW Autism Center works to increase knowledge and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related developmental disabilities among professionals and the public. It aims to promote detection of ASD, inform the community of effective intervention and life-span support, and to learn from community partners to increase the availability of innovative, effective, and supportive programs for individuals with ASD and their families.
