As one of the largest autism centers in the U.S., Marcus Autism Center offers families access to the latest research, comprehensive testing, and science-based treatments. We conduct research into why and how autism develops by studying the different trajectory for each child, and we establish evidence for best clinical practices. 


Marcus Autism Center holds annual symposiums and a Grand Rounds series to share information with providers, researchers, and the community.

Grand Rounds seminars are typically the second Thursday of the month via Zoom. Speakers include Marcus Autism Center faculty and invited guests from other institutions.
