Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a brain disorder that starts early in life. It affects communication skills and social interaction and includes repetitive behaviors. Early intervention is proven to significantly improve symptoms and offer your child the best chance to adapt, grow and thrive into adulthood. Our expert teams in Florida’s Early Autism Intervention Program and at the Swank Autism Center in Delaware provide comprehensive autism evaluations and treatment plans to meet the unique needs of your child and family.

Why Choose Us

Diagnosing children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is complex and requires comprehensive evaluation by experienced pediatric specialists in different medical disciplines. Our teams — which may include psychologists and psychiatrists, child neurologists, neuropsychologists, developmental pediatricians, occupational/speech and language therapists, and applied behavior analysis therapists — are experts at managing ASD to address the immediate and the long-term needs of your child and family.

Nemours Children's specialists create personalized ASD treatment plans. This is because while all children with ASD have difficulties along one or more of the same areas of development, they do not share the exact same symptoms or patterns of behavior. We work with you to help your child have the brightest future possible.
