Autism collaborative opens Riverside location
The Inland Empire Autism Assessment Center of Excellence, a local nonprofit agency, has opened a clinic in Riverside.
Located at 19314 Jesse Lane, the facility is an evaluation-only operation whose staff includes neuropsychologists, pediatric neurologists, pediatricians and speech and language pathologists, according to a statement.
