Asperger's Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic
Experienced and Compassionate Team
The Cognitive Neurology and Memory Disorders Program at BIDMC includes an experienced, compassionate team of clinicians who provide a broad range of services for adults with
Asperger's Syndrome and
Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This multidisciplinary team includes neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, social workers and resource specialists working to leverage their knowledge from multiple disciplines to develop therapeutic options, education, and translational research that will offer insight into ASD while assisting patients and their families.
Leader in Assessment and Treatment
Our team is considered a leader in the assessment and treatment of individuals with AS and ASD, and is a primary referral source for organizations such as the Asperger's Association of New England (AANE) and Families of Adults with Asperger's Syndrome (FAAS).
We carefully assess each patient and create an individually tailored treatment plan with the goal of maximizing independence while preserving the patient's overall quality of life. Staff clinicians work closely with experts in the fields of speech therapy, occupational therapy and vocational rehabilitation to make sure that each patient is provided with the services they need. These practical, patient-focused treatment plans help ensure that the emotional well-being of each patient and their family is the top priority.
