April is Autism Awareness Month and with 1 in 110 children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, we are perhaps too acutely aware. In spite of advancements in research and clinical care, there is still much we don’t know about autism. Parents and caregivers must sift through confusing, often conflicting information about everything from diagnosis to therapies. In an effort to make life a little easier, we at Seattle Children’s Autism Center want to offer a provider’s perspective on various topics relevant to parenting a child with autism.

Our multidisciplinary team of providers will offer commentary on the latest research findings and share with you community events and resources.  We invite you to subscribe to receive blog alerts and to be an active participant. Because our first priority is seeing patients each day, please be patient as we make every effort to post comments and responses in a timely manner.
