The Lurie Center is expanding services for adults with autism spectrum (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders with the knowledge that ASD is a lifelong disorder. Our adult neurology services at the Lurie Center offer both diagnostic evaluations of ASD and developmentally disabled adults, as well as consultations and ongoing care for individuals already diagnosed with these disorders.
Neurologists at the Lurie Center specialize in caring for adults with complex neurological conditions (such as seizures, headaches and tic disorders) that may occur concurrently with developmental disorders. Consistent with the Lurie Center pediatric model, our adult neurologists collaborate with other healthcare professionals to optimally treat adults with ASD and other developmental disorders.
Our neurologists provide both direct clinical care and opportunities for participation in research.
