The UNLV Medicine Ackerman Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment Solutions

Autism, the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the U.S., affects one in every 68 children, including more than 4,750 young Clark County residents.

The UNLV Medicine Ackerman Autism Center provides families with the gamut of specialists needed for autism care: from developmental pediatrics to behavioral health, developmental psychology, neurology, genetics, social and vocation training. The center also provides parenting and sibling classes on dealing with spectrum disorders since often the entire family is affected when a child is diagnosed with autism.

“It’s the first time this scope of services has been all together under one roof,” said Dr. Barbara Atkinson, founding dean of the UNLV School of Medicine.
