EIU Autism Center

About the Autism Center

Autism is the most common developmental disorder, with one in every 68 children meeting the criteria for diagnosis (Center for Disease Control, 2014). Primary symptoms are

  • Impaired reciprocal social interaction
  • Impaired verbal and nonverbal communication
  • Abnormal rituals, sensory sensitivity, and motor patterns

The Autism Center at Eastern Illinois University is housed within the Department of Communication Disorders & Sciences as an extension of the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. Its mission is to provide support services to individuals and their families who are dealing with the challenges of an autism spectrum disorder. Early diagnosis and intervention are key factors in addressing the characteristics of ASD to diminish symptoms and enhance future potential.
