Celebrating a Milestone

The Southeast Missouri State University Autism Center for Diagnosis and Treatment celebrated a decade of service and outreach to families this year. The Center provides diagnostic and intervention services to families and individuals impacted by autism spectrum disorder.

Since it opened, the $2.6 million facility has served nearly 2,000 clients from across the Southeast Missouri region. The Center provides a rich scope of services, including initial diagnostic evaluations and comprehensive re-evaluations for the purpose of identifying autism and various comorbid mental health diagnoses or speech/learning difficulties. The Center specializes in early intensive behavior intervention services and targeted interventions for school-aged children; and social cognition/social thinking, executive functions, and social skills camps that focus on social communication, language pragmatics, and perspective taking.

The Center has been and remains an important resource for families across Southeast Missouri as well as providing critical hands-on learning experiences for Southeast students.
