Las Madrinas Endowment for Autism Research, Interventions and Outcomes

The Las Madrinas Endowment for Autism Research, Interventions and Outcomes has provided critical support for CHLA’s participation in the Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (AS/ATN), a consortium of 13 sites across the US and Canada specializing in multidisciplinary care for children with autism.  The AS/ATN provides state-of-the-art autism-related information, services and supports from nationally renowned clinicians, researchers, specialists, hospitals and academic institutions for families, medical professionals and researchers across North America.  The AS/ATN sites share a common commitment to improving care for those impacted by autism.  This work is done through information-sharing tools, best practices and research studies; advancing the understanding and application of new knowledge at the front lines of clinical practice; and, engaging in and supporting research relevant to clinical practice of the most complex medical conditions related to autism.
