Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is considered one of the most effective treatments for children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.
Programs and Services
The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) offers comprehensive services for children who are newborn to age 21 with autism spectrum disorders or a wide range of other neurodevelopmental disabilities. These conditions impair the development of the brain and central nervous system, affecting emotion, memory, learning and socialization.
CADD was created with the broad goal of providing comprehensive treatment and support for children of all ages. We connect families with professionals in the field and help coordinate a wide range of services in the school and community. Our services include:
- Diagnostic evaluations for autism spectrum disorder
- Assessments in pediatric neurology with neurodevelopmental disabilities specialists
- Behavioral intervention
- Psychiatric consultation and treatment
- Psychological and Neuropsychological evaluations and consultations
- Speech and language evaluation and therapy
- Educational assessments and support
If you would like to make an appointment, please have your pediatricians complete a referral form and fax the form along with the necessary records to 214-867-5389.
Our multidisciplinary autism diagnostic program is the only one in the nation with disease-specific certification by the Joint Commission.
