The UW Medicine Adult Autism Clinic is designed to meet the complex needs of individuals 18 years of age and older with autism spectrum and related disorders. The providers at the Adult Autism Clinic assess the various needs of patients and families and customize care management approaches to assure the best possible patient experience.
Key elements of the Adult Autism Clinic include:
- Behavioral medicine services including medication management and mental health assessments
Effective medication management requires that the patient and provider work together. Controlled medications (e.g., some ADHD and anti-anxiety medications) require careful and continued monitoring and assessments at office visits. Adherence to the UW Medicine treatment agreement is required for receiving controlled medications.
- Resource identification and support to individuals and their families
To prepare for your first visit please bring prior evaluations related to:
- Developmental concerns
- Cognitive status
- Mental health diagnoses
- Psychometric measures (such as "IQ" testing, Stanford-Binet, WISC, etc.)
- Individualized education plans (IEPs from school days)
If a screening evaluation is anticipated, please have an individual attend the visit who can speak about childhood history, such as a family member.
The Adult Autism Clinic is located on the 3rd floor of the UW Medical Center-Roosevelt Building located at 4225 Roosevelt Way, Suite 306, in the Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic. This location provides convenient access to other UW Medicine diagnostic and clinic services, including women's health, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy and internal medicine.
