This month’s Autism 200 Series class  “The State of Autism in 2017” will be held Thursday, January 19, 2017 at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Wright Auditorium from 7 to 8:30 p.m.


These classes are designed for parents, teachers and caregivers. The topics associated with the majority of classes are applicable to all age ranges and for a wide variety of children diagnosed with autism.

Considerable advances have occurred in both science and in the community, state and national levels in 2016. Seattle Children’s Autism Center’s Dr. Raphael Bernier, clinical director, and Jim Mancini, coordinator of training, education and outreach, will review the most newsworthy and influential scientific and community advances in the world of autism spectrum disorder from the past year. We will also discuss what we can expect in the changing educational and political landscape of 2017.
