The Alan and Lorraine Bressler Clinical and Research Program for Autism Spectrum Disorders is dedicated to improving the clinical care of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, to advance the education of patients, families and service providers about these conditions, and to expand the scientific understanding of these disorders
What can I expect at the Bressler Program for Autism Spectrum Disorders?
When you contact our program, a coordinator will ask you a number of questions about the person’s history of ASD (whether or not he or she has been previously diagnosed), medication and treatment history, medical history, family history, and school status and will send you a packet with additional questions to be completed for your first appointment. The coordinator will answer any questions you have about the program and facilitate registration and scheduling an appointment.
The first appointment will consist of a consultation with a specialized psychiatrist. Depending on the individual needs, the psychiatrist may recommend consultations with other specialists in our program as needed, for further testing, behavioral therapies, and social service supports.
Our specialists will monitor the care plan, adjust medications as necessary for maximum effectiveness, and serve as a focal point for synthesizing information and recommendations for school and other sources.
