MRI Shows Early Brain Changes in Autistic Children

Another fantastic article highlighting some of the research that the UWAC has contributed to! This piece has information about our Infant MRI study and remarks by Dr. Stephen Dager. Click the link to check it out! #UW #UWAC #UniversityofWashington #autismresearch #research #autism While researchers continue to make progress in understanding autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the statistics on ASD remain sobering.

The UW Autism Center's 4th Annual Open House was a WONDERFUL event! This years’ theme, Family-Powered Research and Care, proved to be so meaningful. We reflected on how the advances we have seen over the last 20 years in autism research, society, and clinical services have been absolutely powered by families. It has been in partnership with families that the UWAC has had the honor of contributing to this amazing two decades of progress and change. So glad to see everyone! We hope you learned, connected, and were inspired. #UW #UWAC #autism

The Daily

The University of Washington Autism Center focuses mainly on young children but is also aimed at bringing more awareness to autism on campus.

For a third year in a row, The Shevitz family pulled off a wonderful event to raise funds for the UW Autism Center. Jen Shevitz, founder of the annual fun run, Run2Pieces, presented the UW Autism Center with a check for over $11,000 to cover the cost of diagnostic evaluations for families without adequate coverage for this essential service. We thank the Shevitz family and all of the generous people who joined them in this event! #run2pieces #autism
