Hope for the Future

Improving Access to Autism Care for Washington Children and Families

When Stefanee and her husband saw their toddler Benton’s vocabulary shrink from 70 words to only two, they knew something was wrong. They left his pediatrician’s office with a list of providers who could evaluate him for autism, but none had a wait list shorter than 12 months. Knowing that delays could impact their son’s development and unsure of how to get him the care he needed, they found Washington State University’s Autism and Neurodevelopmental Clinic in Spokane.


Now, with a timely diagnosis and therapy, Benton has not only regained his words but said “Mama” for the first time.

“We are so grateful for this clinic, because in a very uncertain time they were able to offer our family hope for our child,” Stefanee said.

The Autism and Neurodevelopmental Clinic fills a critical gap in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) services in eastern Washington by providing timely diagnostic evaluations, comprehensive treatment planning, and opportunities to participate in innovative WSU research. When you give, you ensure Washington children can access the care that they need.
