Boston Children’s Hospital offers autism care not only at our main campus in Boston, but also in our Lexington, Peabody, Waltham and Weymouth locations.  

Children can be seen by any of three kinds of specialists for diagnosis and ongoing care: a developmental behavioral pediatrician, a child neurologist or a psychologist. All are equally trained and follow the same clinical guidelines.

In addition to the providers below, many of our specialists in gastroenterology, nutrition, genetics, sleep, epilepsy and occupational therapy have experience working with children with ASD. 

Our intake team will guide you to the first available appointment that best meets your needs and can also facilitate visits with our specialty providers. We also have a great team of resource specialists that helps you connect with resources in your community.
