What Makes the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinic Different? 

Our team has extensive education and experience in understanding the needs of people with autism spectrum disorders. We have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and their families across the continuum of care, including public schools, hospitals, day treatment settings, and outpatient settings.


  • Autism spectrum disorder assessment
  • Social skills groups for children, adolescents and adults
  • Individual/Family therapy
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Behavior Management
  • School consultations
  • Early intervention services
  • Referral support to occupational and speech therapies
  • Opportunities to participate in research to help us better understand ASD
  • Additional therapeutic and educational groups

Our goal is to partner with individuals and families to improve the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders. We are a partnership between the Department of Psychiatry, the Neurobehavior HOME Program, and the University Neuropsychiatric Institute.
