In 2023, the CDC reported that approximately 1 in 36 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to 2020 data. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls. Autism affects all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Early intervention affords the best opportunity to support healthy development and deliver benefits across the lifespan.
Northwest Autism Center exists to build, facilitate and coordinate comprehensive services for those with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. Presently, our services a include an intensive day treatment program, speech & language therapy, community based ABA, social skills groups and provider education opportunities.
