NMSU is making it easier for parents to have their kids tested for autism.
The university says many New Mexico families are having to wait 2-3 years to get their kids diagnosed since they can only do it in Albuquerque. However, a new clinic is opening this year on the Las Cruces campus.
NMSU says it can make a big difference, since early treatment can help prevent a child from developing associated issues.
The state legislature approved funding for the clinic during this year’s session.
