Date:1/19/2011

LOS ANGELES (January 19, 2011) Following a competitive application process, Michele D. Kipke, PhD, Vice Chair of Research for the Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, was awarded a $420,000 grant which will allow the hospital to become part of the Autism Treatment Network (ATN) as an ATN Center of Clinical Excellence.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles is the only ATN Center of Clinical Excellence in California.

"It is with great enthusiasm that we join the Autism Treatment Network. Participation will allow us to engage in cutting-edge clinical and translational research that seeks to promote both discovery and delivery of high-quality care to children with autism spectrum disorder and their families," said Dr. Kipke.

The ATN is a clinical program, administered by Autism Speaks, that serves a critical role in advancing scientific discovery and developing clinical guidelines and evidence-based approaches to meet the complex medical needs of children with an autism spectrum disorder. The ATN consists of a network of hospitals and doctors employing a common protocol for diagnosis of autism and treatment of associated medical conditions.

There are two primary autism clinics at Children's Hospital Los Angeles: the Boone Fetter Clinic and the USC University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. Larry Yin, MD, MSPH, a board-certified developmental behavioral pediatrician, provides medical leadership at both sites. Both clinics use a family-centered model for patient care.

Coordination of services is performed by a nurse management team with the
