Shortage Of Autism Specialists Means Some Families Have To Wait For Therapy
About 7,000 young people have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in Nevada. While there is no cure, research shows Applied Behavior Analysis can help. But in the Silver State, there are less than 300 specialists certified to provide that type of one-on–one work.
Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders announces a partnership with the University of Nevada School of Medicine. The purpose of the partnership is to bring more services to autistic children at a two-story center across from UNLV's main campus. The partnership received kudos from some of the local media.
