At the Nemours Swank Autism Center, we prepare children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to grow up to be as independent as possible. With our expertise and support, you get everything you need right here, all in one place.
Our psychologists, psychiatrists and developmental pediatricians care for babies and children of all ages. We provide complete ASD evaluations, as well as genetic testing, advanced brain imaging and specialist appointments as needed.
We lead important autism research and bring you our latest discoveries. Our team uses proven methods to help your child speak, eat, socialize, and learn better. We also manage your child’s medical needs as they grow.
And you’re never alone at Nemours. We help you with what to do next, and what to do after that. We show you how to handle different behaviors and how to help your child cope. We also connect you to resources and help you get school services.
Our goal is to help your child grow up healthy and happy.
Our autism center is designed with your child in mind. With muted colors and quiet spaces, our low-sensory environment is peaceful and welcoming.
