The Northwest Autism Foundation was founded in 1996 to improve the lives of those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders through the mobilization of resources and by championing innovative solutions. This year the foundation plans to launch an early intervention program designed to help identify those at risk for developing autism as early as 6 months.
