Together, we can lower the age of diagnosis by continuing to expand Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center’s (SARRC) early screening projects within our community. Our research emphasizes the importance and effectiveness of early screening, diagnosis and intervention for autism spectrum disorder.
We need supporters like you to help fund our critical screening projects. Two SARRC research initiatives focused on early autism screening that we look forward to expanding and providing to the community at no cost:
- Screening in Schools allows SARRC to implement universal screening for social challenges among elementary and middle school students.
- Pediatric Screening Network is comprised of 75 pediatricians throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan Area who are helping to actively screen children for signs of autism at age 12-24 months.
Help Us Lower the Age of Autism Diagnosis
Your support through a $36 tax-deductible gift will cover the cost to screen one child through our screening initiatives. With your support, we hope to screen 16,600 children through these two screening projects this year.
