Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that involves social, communication and behavioral challenges.

Your child might find it hard to:

  • Tell other people what he or she needs or feels.
  • Meet other people and make new friends.
  • Understand how other people think and feel.
  • Be flexible and adjust to change.

Everyone with autism is different. At the New England Pediatric Institute of Neurodevelopment we know that and offer individualized care for children from early childhood to early adulthood. We are affiliated with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and accredited by the American Psychiatric Association.

Assessing Your Child for Austim Spectrum Disorder

Our team of ASD experts, based on your child’s needs, can include neuropsychologists, developmental behavioral pediatricians, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and a care navigator. Our evaluations include standard of care measures such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) to see if your child has ASD or other difficulties.

Our goal is to identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses so we know his or her abilities and needs. We evaluate:

  • Reasoning.
  • Communication.
  • Social skills.
  • Behavior and executive functioning.

We will talk with you about your concerns and your child’s medical, educational, social and behavioral history. We have many services that can help you, and can also connect you with community resources.

Following Up

As your child grows, his or her needs, abilities and struggles may change. Our follow-up can include:

  • Ongoing assessments to make sure we have the right treatment and goals in place.
  • Medication, if necessary, to help with your child’s emotional, behavioral and sleep challenges.
  • Care for other needs like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, disruptive and repetitive behaviors, and tic disorders.
  • Help transitioning to adult care when the time is right.

Research Center

We are affiliated with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and do research at our center to help improve the lives of people with ASD and their families. We can also connect you with researchers throughout Brown if you want to join a study.
