<p>I'm wondering if anyone here has any experiance or knowledge of these two autism centers in Atlanta:</p>
<p>Marcus Institute</p>
<p>Emory Autism Center</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also called Hughes-Spalding (the childrens hospital) and they have an 11 month wait.  I'm new to all this and am lucky to have a few options in the city, but don't really know what I'm doing or what I'm looking for.  Can anyone share any insight?  thanks</p>

<p>I don't know where you are located, and I don't know anything about those specific places...but I'm in Chattanooga and my son sees Dr. Gargus at Siskin's Center for Developmental and Behaviorial Pediatrics.  She's a developmental behaviorial pediatrician, & there are OT's, PT's, ST's, and much more there. We've had a lot of success with the center there. There also is a place here called T.E.A.M., which is a center for Autism and other developmental disorders.</p>

<p>thanks for the input.  We are right in the city so we'll probably stay local.  Ds has his first screening appt this Friday and while he'll prob have a great time, I'm nervous.</p>

<br><br><p>I can understand being nervous, but you'll be right there with him the whole time.  At the center we go to, you can even watch (and hear) the therapists working w/the kids through 2 way mirrored glass, so if they want to observe or work w/him without you, you should be able to watch them. (-: Hope you are pleasantly surprised and get some helpful insight and expertise.</p>

<p>The Emory Autism Center has a famous inclusion-based school.  I once attended a lecture by the director of the school.  It is a highly respected center in the world of autism.</p>
