Welcome to Northwest Autism Center

Promoting the worth of every individual

The needs of people with Autism are no different than for any of us. We all need to love and be loved, to be seen, known and accepted by others, to grow and learn, to work and play, and even to fail. To the extent that our unique and sometimes complex challenges limit us, we all need access to the human hand of care.

University Partnerships

Our Main Service

Northwest Autism Center is committed to raising the level of awareness and understanding regarding the challenges families face in raising a child(ren) with autism spectrum disorder.

Our Facilities

Northwest Autism Center launched one of the first Early Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Treatment Clinics for children ages 2 through 5 in January 2014. Since that time, NAC has opened two additional Intensive Clinics which are accessible to children currently enrolled in one of the Washington State managed care plans.

Agency-approved intensive ABA treatment clinics provide comprehensive and multidisciplinary services to young children with autism spectrum and related conditions. These clinics follow guidelines created by a group of experts and adopted by the WA State Health Care Authority (HCA) in 2014.

We Employ Community based services

Northwest Autism Center provides comprehensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment for individuals through the lifespan with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other disabilities in home and community settings.

Individualized, data-based treatment is coordinated and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who is qualified to address socially significant skills in a variety of settings and is licensed with the Department of Health. Further, our Behavior Analysts provide families with ongoing training and support, and collaborate with other service providers to assist with coordination of care.

“Understanding and appreciating the challenges and differences of the people around us is what defines our humanity. When we extend ourselves to understand even one individual who is ‘different’ than we are, we extend ourselves to understand people we have never met, and parts of ourselves we have perhaps never owned.”

Dawn Sidell

Founder, Executive Director of Northwest Autism Center

“Having had a child recently diagnosed and feeling lost about next steps the people at Northwest Autism took the time to explain everything, offer therapy options in clinic and in home, as well as references to support groups, diagnosis information, and educational support. Highly Recommend!”
