Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities
The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) is an interdisciplinary program offering comprehensive patient care and translational medicine for individuals with autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders.
The Center is a joint endeavor between UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children’s Health℠, and additional collaborations with UT Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders are critical to both our clinical and research missions. CADD is a single home for patients and families where multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment teams work alongside leading scientists utilizing state-of-the-art approaches for understanding and treating neurodevelopmental disorders.
