Thompson Center joins national autism network (Jefferson City News Tribune)

The University of Missouri's Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders is now part of an international autism treatment network.

Autism Speaks, the nation's leading autism advocacy organization, announced that its Autism Treatment Network (ATN) would expand from five to 15 sites across the United States and Canada. The ATN is a collaborative group of major medical centers dedicated to improving and standardizing medical care for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders.

The Thompson Center serves nearly 1,000 children with autism spectrum disorders and their families each year in the context of a comprehensive multidisciplinary center.

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