Seattle Children's to acquire autism clinic

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, February 26, 2009

Seattle Children's Hospital has decided to acquire one of the city's leading autism clinics as part of a broader plan to create a state-of-the-art program dedicated to the disorder. The hospital will absorb ASTAR, a 14-person operation that worked with nearly 900 families last year on a $520,000 budget. Despite ASTAR's clinical success, it was struggling to raise enough money to continue.
