child playing with building blocks

To provide services to address autism-specific service needs in a manner consistent with the following goals:

  • Increasing access and reducing wait time for diagnostic and treatment services
  • Providing critical diagnostic information to families in a timely manner which includes appropriate referrals for other services their child may be eligible to receive and identify the treatment options.
  • Providing evidence-based intervention services and advocating in the child’s community
  • Conducting training for pre-professional students and community professionals to increase the capacity for services throughout the state

The Southeast Autism Center for Diagnosis and Treatment is staffed with credentialed and licensed professionals who have developed expertise in addressing the needs of individuals with an autism spectrum disorder and their families; using evidence-based practices as identified in research and acknowledged in the Missouri Autism Guidelines Initiative publication, “Autism Spectrum Disorders: Guide to Evidence-Based Interventions.”
