Dr, Stobbe will discuss autism and his practice as Director of Adult Transition Services at Seattle Children’s Autism Center. His accolades include:

“Dr. Stobbe has been such a blessing to my son Tion. He is 10 years old and we have been seeing Dr. Stobbe For over five years. Tion is currently on medication that is helping him tremendously in school and with his behavior. This of course was not Dr. Stobbe’s first answer – we tried everything before actually placing Tion on medication at 7 years old. Before Dr. Stobbe, no one could help me, no one even knew enough about the Autism spectrum to help me. I highly recommend Dr. Stobbe for anyone, child or adult, living with Autism.”

Dr. Stobbe was great with our son Jake who has Autism. We traveled from Montana and met with Dr. Stobbe. The entire visit was great, they knew exactly how to handle Jake and we didn’t feel alone. They even had toys that he loved and played with during the visit. This is a god send and I will recommend this clinic for anyone on the spectrum.”
