Dr. Ann Neumeyer, Medical Director of the Lurie Center for Autism and Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, is a child neurologist with 20 years of experience diagnosing and caring for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

As Medical Director, Dr. Neumeyer develops and directs initiatives to enhance and expand the clinical services of the Lurie Center for individuals with ASD across the lifespan.

Dr. Neumeyer focuses on improving the lives of patients with ASD and their families far beyond the Lurie Center.  She coordinates autism related care programs with other clinical and research programs throughout Massachusetts General Hospital.  Outside the hospital, Dr. Neumeyer's leadership role as an advocate for patients with ASD and their families has been recognized through her appointment to the Massachusetts  Governor's Autism Council Subcommittee for School Aged Children. Dr. Neumeyer is also a member of the Steering Committees of both Boston's Autism Consortium and the Autism Treatment Network's Autism Intervention Network on Physical Health (AIR-P), a national collaboration of academic medical centers.


Dr. Neumeyer's research relates to understanding medical issues which occur with autism spectrum disorders and to systematically develop and assess treatment processes to improve the patient and family experience with the medical system.  She is a co-Principal Investigator for the Autism Treatment Network (ATN), a national and international network of academic sites, looking at sleep, gastrointestinal and neurological disorders experienced by many Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) children and adolescents.  Dr. Neumeyer has received funding from HRSA/The Autism Intervention Research Project to support studies of bone development in boys with autism.
