Announcing the Autism 200 Series Schedule for 2017

Next week we kick off a brand new line up of free Autism 200 Series lectures for those who wish to better understand autism spectrum disorder. First up is Autism 201: The State of Autism in 2017. Join in-person or tune in at one of our video teleconferencing locations throughout Washington.

Considerable advances occurred in both science and on the community, state and national levels in 2016. Seattle Children’s Autism Center’s Dr. Raphael Bernier, clinical director and Jim Mancini, coordinator of training, education and outreach, will review the most newsworthy and influential scientific and community advances in the world of autism spectrum disorder from the past year. They will also discuss what we can expect in the changing educational and political landscape of 2017. Autism 200 is a series of 90-minute classes for those who wish to better understand autism spectrum disorder.

“Children’s has given Kelahna the life she has. It has never been just, ‘Is she functioning?’ They have always asked, ‘Is she functioning well in her community?’” – Amy, Kelahna’s mom.

Happily, she is. At age 11, she has undergone 35 surgeries at Seattle Children’s and seen providers and nurses from urology, orthopedics, rehabilitation medicine, neurosurgery — and the list goes on. But one person is always part of her care team, Dr. Walker.

Dr. Walker and his neurodevelopmental team take a holistic look at their patients, including what’s happening in their family, their school, their community — and of course their medical health, behavior and development — and work to improve their quality of life.

“He is our go-to person. He takes all of my questions and helps me navigate other teams. There are so many doctors and care providers; I can’t express how critical it has been for us to have this one consistent presence, and for it to be Dr. Walker.”
