Yakima’s Children’s Village Expanding Services
Children’s Village has received a big grant to expand its services for autism screening and diagnostics for children under the age of five. The office of the Attorney General of Washington awarded $70,000 through a competitive process. The funding comes from a multi-state consumer protection settlement with Abbott laboratories. The court ordered the Attorney General’s Office to use the funds to provide direct treatment, medication or counseling to people suffering from schizophrenia, dementia or autism.
