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.
