National Group Names VU to Autism Treatment Network (Newswise)

Newswise — The nation's leading autism advocacy organization is funding Vanderbilt University Medical Center to become one of the new Autism Treatment Network (ATN) sites — an elite designation in the field of autism treatment and research.

Autism Speaks announced Wednesday the approval of $450,000 over three years for Vanderbilt as part of its expansion from five sites to 15 across the United States and Canada.

ATN treatment and research centers are dedicated to improving medical care for children and adolescents with autism.

Rises as gladly in the single tree
As in the whole orchards resonant with bees."
