Fabulous is one word that sums up my experience at Anderson Center for Autism. I travel to two to three cities per week so I have a good sense of autism services and I’d be hard pressed to think of a center that is more comprehensive or dedicated. I am very impressed by the passion shared by Neil Pollack and the Executive Team – and the faculty is tremendous. Their creativity and vision is so evident and it manifests itself in the Center delivering what’s best for all involved. From children to adults, there’s a place for everyone at ACA.

Mark Roithmayr, Former President of Autism Speaks
