The Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disorders Resource Center was created to respond to the unique challenges that individuals with autism spectrum and developmental disorders face. The Resource Center works with individuals from early childhood through adulthood who have an autism spectrum or developmental disorder. Individuals and families are screened via phone, email or in-person. The Clinical Director will provide an assessment to determine the individual's need for services. Recommendations will then be provided and the individual and/or family will either be directed to services within the Alexian Brothers Health System, or to external services in the community.
The Clinical Director will also provide brief counseling and advocacy for both individuals and families. Additionally, The Resource Center also offers information such as books, DVDs, and a computer to educate families about the spectrum of disorders and resources available in the community.
The Alexian Brothers Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disorders Resource Center acts as a hub that coordinates evaluation services, treatment services and ongoing support care for families. Find one family's story above.
