Be a champion. Support the Autism Center with your gift today.

You may not realize it, but autism has probably touched the life of somebody you know. With an incidence of one in every 88 children, it is the most common developmental disorder. Early identification and intensive therapy typically help these children and their families overcome the educational challenges presented by autism, but this has proven an overwhelming task for our public school system to undertake alone.

That's where the EIU Department of Communication Disorders and Sciences and EIU Autism Center come in. Our accomplished faculty and staff provide evaluations and recommendations necessary to help educators best serve the academic needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorders, but our resources are limited. Therefore, so is the number of families we can serve. With your help, though, we can expand our operations. The wait time for families embarking on this journey with their child could be significantly reduced by further dedicating faculty expertise and university facilities to this initiative.
