Whether your child has already been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or you need a comprehensive evaluation, we can help you navigate the process of getting the services your child needs. Our highly train developmental pediatricians are here to assess your child through a comprehensive examination. If needed, they can make referrals to the many pediatric specialists at our hospital. Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a therapeutic intervention recommended by our physicians and we have a full list of referrals throughout the state.
Our family resource specialist is trained through the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network to educate you and your family about the services that your school district and community have to offer. Our social worker will meet with you individually to put your mind at ease as well as invite you to our parent support groups. From early intervention to transition services for your adolescent, we can guide you to the right resources.
