Pause in New Referrals to Autism and DD Clinic

The Waisman Center Autism and Developmental Disabilities Clinic (A&DD), one of 11 specialty clinics at the Waisman Center in partnership with UW Health Kids, is now accepting new referrals for children 4 years old and younger.

There remains a pause on referrals for children 5 and over.  At this time, we anticipate beginning to re-open referrals for children over 5 in Fall 2022.

We continue to work through our current waitlist, however, there remains a 2-year wait for appointments for children 5 years of age and older.
