The science of clinical care
Delivering the best care to the greatest number of children—
this goal lives in the hearts of every clinician and staff
member at Marcus Autism Center. With his appointment as
the Director of Marcus Autism Center, Ami Klin, Ph.D., is
developing an approach that incorporates more research into
our everyday clinical care. The combination of research
and large clinical volumes will allow Dr. Klin to advance the
science of autism to improvethe diagnosis and early intervention
of these conditions.
Two decades and thousands of grateful families
Twenty years ago, Billi and Bernie Marcus began an important dialogue
about the direction of care for children with brain disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
When Marcus opened his center, the prevalence of ASDs was one in 5,000 children. Today, one in 98 Georgia
children has an ASD. Marcus understood what was at stake—the lives of tens of thousands of children.
