UK Autism Clinic Offers Help to Patients and Families

Ionut Moga, 11, is a cheerful, talkative, über sports fan who doesn't care that the name of the new clinic in the little white bungalow not far from the University of Kentucky main campus is CASPER, which stands for Center for Autism Spectrum Evaluation, Service, and Research. He's unaware it offers diagnostic and social-skills assessments that many previously had to drive to Cincinnati or Louisville to get. Ionut just knows that if he listens and practices what he learns it will help him make friends. Eventually, he hopes, they will come to his house to play.
