The Touro Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities opened in 2008 as a state-of-the-art facility designed with the special needs of children with developmental disabilities in mind. At the forefront of educating the Southern Nevada community on Autism, Touro is able to provide support to families seeking treatment at the Center through scholarships raised at community events throughout the year. For many families a diagnosis of Autism can be life-altering and comes with considerable costs for services.
