HANDS in Autism

The HANDS in Autism® Interdisciplinary Training and Resource Center was founded in 2004 to extend the outreach and training offered by the Christian Sarkine Autism Treatment Center at Riley Hospital at IU Health and the IU School of Medicine.

With incredible passion and efforts of HANDS staff and foundational support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and subsequently from such sponsors as the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), IU Health, and various charitable and philanthropic organizations and individuals, HANDS has been able to emerge as a state-wide program and resource center in its own right.
