Scottsdale and the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center have partnered to expand the specialized facility to a fourth Valley campus.

SARRC plans to move into part of the city-operated Paiute Neighborhood Center near 64th Street and Osborn Road in the summer. An exact date for the opening has not yet been announced.

“In 2019, we announced a bold vision of becoming a statewide organization by 2030, and through this supportive partnership, we are one step closer to realizing that vision,” Daniel Openden, president and CEO of SARRC, said in a press release.

“The Paiute Neighborhood Center offers an exceptional resource to neighboring areas and we are confident that SARRC’s presence will also provide valuable resources and services to these same families.”

The first two programs at the site will focus on a comprehensive intervention program and the Community School, a preschool for children with autism spectrum disorder and typically developing children ages 18 months to 5 years.

SARRC also has two campuses in Phoenix and one in Tempe.
