Autism Spectrum Center | Our Services

Boston Children’s Hospital provides diagnostic evaluations and comprehensive medical care, customized to each child’s needs. If your child already has a health care provider, we can also provide selected specialized services.

All of our services can be accessed through our one-stop Autism Spectrum Center (ASC) Information Line: 617-355-7493.

  • diagnostic evaluation of autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • neurologic and developmental evaluations
  • ongoing management of ASD symptoms
  • specialty care for conditions related to autism, such as epilepsy, gastrointestinal disorders and genetic and neurogenetic conditions
  • recommendations and referrals for autism-specific developmental, educational, communication and therapeutic services
  • assistance with feeding, toileting, sleep and other difficulties
  • speech and language evaluations and treatments through our Center for Communication Enhancement and Autism Language Program
  • medication prescriptions and psychopharmacology consultations
  • occupational and physical therapy

Scheduling your first appointment

If you are contacting us for the first time, our intake team will ask you to complete intake forms. These intake forms are also available below in PDF format. The team will also request:

  • copies of any recent testing, including cognitive/psychological testing and speech, occupational therapy or physical therapy evaluations
  • records of any early intervention services or IEP/504 plans
  • past medical and diagnostic assessments

Once all documents have been returned and reviewed by our autism spectrum disorder specialist team, we will contact you to schedule the first available appointment that best matches your needs. This may be with a single physician, nurse practitioner or a team of providers.
