Seattle Children’s Autism Center has moved from the Lisa Li building (4909 25th Ave NE) to Seattle Children’s Magnuson (6901 Sandpoint Way NE), which is conveniently located just one and a half miles from our Seattle Children’s hospital campus. We are now seeing patients at the new location starting today, Monday, December 12, 2022.
The new space will bring together the Autism Center and many of Seattle Children’s outpatient behavioral health programs. We will continue to provide the same high-quality, family-focused care that Seattle Children’s is known for, while accelerating collaboration between the clinicians and researchers who are working tirelessly to meet the growing need for autism and behavioral health services for youth and their families.
Seattle Children’s Magnuson was specially designed for youth with autism or behavioral health needs. Exam rooms are more personal, less like a traditional exam room. Subtle, indirect, controllable lighting for patients with sensory needs allows for a more welcoming environment. The sensory garden offers a therapeutic sensory landscape for all those who visit.
At 45,000 square feet, this new site helps ensure we have the necessary space to provide the best, state-of-the-art care for kids with autism or behavioral health needs. More space gives us greater flexibility to develop the continuum of care, because we will have the appropriate spaces for classes, groups and other programs, in addition to individual therapy.
The staff at the Autism Center are very excited about the new space and the changes coming with this move, and are thrilled to have a space that accommodates more families. See you at the new location soon!
