Cady Stanton, M.S.

I have worked with youth and adults diagnosed with autism and ADHD for over 15 years in clinical and research settings.

  • As a Group Facilitator for Open Doors Therapy, I supported autistic teens and adults in navigating social, relationship, and employment challenges. 


  • At the MIND Institute at U.C. Davis, a collaborative international research center focused on neurodevelopmental disorders, I conducted assessments for autism and ADHD.



I have been a guest speaker and trainer on executive function and neurodivergence.  You can watch or listen to some of my recent presentations and interviews at the links below:

I have maintained a strong social justice focus throughout my career.  Twenty percent of my services are provided at no charge to families who could not otherwise access care. I have focused on increasing access to culturally competent care for neurodivergent individuals, including coordinating the translation of important autism related documents into Tagalog


Previously, I served as a case manager for homeless refugee & immigrant families, supported Hurricane Katrina survivors, prepared the legislative report for the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance for five years, and provided academic and career mentoring to at-risk youth.


Many of my family members are autistic or have ADHD. I identify as neurodivergent, appreciating the value of neurological differences while acknowledging the challenges we face.
