The Lurie Center for Autism is an integrated and multidisciplinary clinical, research, training and advocacy program dedicated to treating individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disorders. The Lurie Center is the primary clinical care and clinical research site implementing the broader goals of the Lurie Center for Autism.

The Lurie Center is born out of a philosophy that people with developmental disabilities deserve to be viewed as individuals, each with personal patterns of talents and challenges. We strongly believe each individual deserves the opportunity for access to the quantity and quality of services needed to reach his or her full potential, regardless of economic, social or ethnic background. 

The Lurie Center is a multidisciplinary program designed to evaluate and treat children, adolescents and adults with a wide variety of neurodevelopmental conditions. Individuals seeking evaluation or services for the following conditions are frequently referred to the Lurie Center:                                                                                                                                  

We specialize in caring for individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders with complex profiles who may also have accompanying conditions such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, sleep problems, gastrointestinal conditions, and many other physical or cognitive concerns.

Our physicians evaluate patients and develop a comprehensive plan for each patient, which can be shared with the caregiver, referring physician, school and/or community program. Care is taken to help the family locate appropriate resources. Long-term follow-up care is provided via periodic consultations.

A summary of the accomplishments across our mission of clinical care, research, education and policy is found in our Lurie Center for Autism: Annual Update.

Navigating Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Our mission is to treat individuals and support their families over the lifespan

Finding the way through the world of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can be a daunting task.  Families often struggle to separate the overload of information from thousands of sources.  It is difficult to know what theories to question and which sources to trust.  It is also challenging to decide what applies to each situation, how to prioritize, and how to take action.

This site addresses common questions and concerns about ASD with evidence-based answers that have been reviewed by professionals at the Lurie Center for Autism.   Our goal is to continually update this resource as new information is discovered, evidence develops and new research is published.

 

Acute Care Plan for Autism   

The Massachusetts General Hospital for Children's Acute Care Plan (ACP) addresses non-medical needs of an individual with autism when in the hospital setting.  Parents/guardians are encouraged to fill out the ACP.
