True to its name, autism is a spectrum. Some kids may have severe challenges, while others do not. By thinking of the condition as a spectrum, we can better understand the range of functioning that people with autism have.
A subsidiary of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Marcus Autism Center is one of the largest autism centers in the U.S. and one of only five National Institutes of Health (NIH) Autism Centers of Excellence. We offer families access to the latest research, comprehensive evaluations and intensive behavior treatments. Since we began, Marcus Autism Center has provided clinical services to more than 30,000 patients. We are committed to maximizing the potential of children with autism today and transforming the nature of autism for future generations.
Backed by scientific evidence, we offer a number of services and evidence-based treatments so that families can receive diagnosis, treatment and support in a single location. The evidence-based approach allows us to clearly document particular treatments, as well as show our patients and their families what has proven to be successful and produces positive outcomes for children with autism.
In addition, we collaborate with premier academic institutions nationwide to bring groundbreaking research and clinical services to children and families affected by autism.
