The CDRC Autism Program provides services to children with established or suspected symptoms on the autism spectrum. Our program is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of clinical psychologists, developmental pediatricians, speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, audiologists, physical therapists, and a family consultant who come together to understand the individual differences and needs of each child we meet.

Our goal is to provide interdisciplinary care for children and their families in a supportive and caring environment, where parents are respected and believed to be their child's best advocate.

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