For more than 30 years, the Autism Treatment Center has assisted individuals with autism throughout their lives 24/7/365 as they learn, play, work and live in the community. ATC provides: residential, educational, employment, diagnostic, therapeutic, consultation, information dissemination and research services for people with autism and their families. The Autism Treatment Center currently operates day programs in Dallas and San Antonio, owns 19 group homes ĘC 13 in Dallas and 7 in San Antonio, manages a Diagnostic & Therapeutic Rehabilitation Agency in San Antonio, and is looking  forward to opening a similar Rehab Agency in the Dallas/Fort Worth area later this year.  In addition, the ATC is launching a Capital Campaign to build a state-of-the-art, environmentally sensitive treatment facility in San Antonio to expand services for individuals with autism and their families.  

  ATC also works with school districts, universities, and medical professionals in support of external efforts to meet the needs of individuals with autism. Currently, ATC is partnering or collaborating with several universities across the state to facilitate research efforts and to provide training and observation time for students studying autism spectrum disorder.  

  Autism has increased exponentially and the need for services is growing rapidly.  It may surprise you to know that today, autism is the most widely diagnosed developmental disability in the nation, and the numbers have changed from 1 in 166 to now affecting 1 in 150 children, a ten-fold increase over the past 20 years. It is more common than the sum of all childhood cancers, muscular dystrophy, juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis combined. Every day, 66 children are diagnosed with autism, nearly 3 per hour.   

  In addition, the Current Autism Facts:

 1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism

  More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined

  Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.

 Autism costs the nation over $90 billion per year, a figure expected to double in the next decade

 Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism 

There is no medical detection or cure for autism
