There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
If you have a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), or if you think your child might have ASD, the Autism Spectrum Center at Boston Children’s Hospital is here to help. We partner with families:
We provide comprehensive, family-centered diagnostic and care services for children with autism spectrum disorder, together with strong family support. Depending on your child’s needs, we can coordinate visits with autism specialists such as developmental behavioral pediatricians, child neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, geneticists and gastroenterologists, as well as physical, occupational, and speech and language therapists. If you already have a health care provider you like, we can provide any medical services you need to fill in the gaps.
Our ASD services include diagnosis, ongoing management, help with communication and activities of daily life, medication management and specialty care as needed. Read more about our ASD services.
Families and providers can get information and access all our services through our one-stop phone line: 617-355-7493. Appointments are available at the main hospital in Boston or at our Lexington, Peabody, Waltham and Weymouth locations.
