The CDRC Autism Program provides services to children with established or suspected symptoms autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Our program is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of clinical psychologists, developmental pediatricians, psychiatrists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, audiologists, social workers, and family consultants who come together to understand the individual differences and needs of each family we have the privilege of serving.

Our goal is to provide multidisciplinary care for individuals and their families in a supportive and caring environment, where parents and individuals are respected and understood to be their own best advocates.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families through partnerships with families, professionals, and the autism community.
