April is Autism Acceptance Month

During Autism Acceptance Month, we thank our many dedicated supporters of our Autism Center who help us meet the growing need for care. Last year, some magic came to Seattle Children’s Magnuson with the naming of the Autism Center’s registration area and main waiting room in honor of Wizards of the Coast and the longtime partner’s $5 million commitment.

Seattle Children’s Autism Center is known nationally for our wide range of innovative, effective treatments and services. From our early intervention program for children under 6 to our transition support for young adults preparing for the next stage of life, we provide care that can make a real difference for your family.

To meet the growing need for high-quality treatment, the Autism Center recently moved to Seattle Children’s Magnuson. At roughly 16,000 square feet, the re-imagined center will allow us to provide family-focused care to 25% more children with autism over the next 5 years. Magnuson is also our hub for autism research, outreach and training so we can keep improving access and outcomes.

Thoughtfully designed with help from patient families, the new space is calming and comfortable. Features like lighting were chosen to create a welcoming environment for children with sensory challenges. A therapeutic garden offers colors, sounds, textures and scents to explore.
