Name Change: Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment

We are pleased to announce that the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders has changed its name to the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment.

This name change aligns with the scope of work at the Thompson Center, work that encompasses autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other influences on development from infancy to adulthood. As leaders in this field, our family-centered services, cutting edge research, and training programs have impacts beyond the clinical definition of a “disorder.”

The University of Missouri System Board of Curators approved the name change on June 23; the change is effective October 4, 2022.
