Beaumont Children's Hospital offers a number of clinical autism treatment programs for children on the spectrum of disorders. These services are provided by the Center for Human Development (CHD), the Children's Speech and Language Pathology Department and the Departments of Physical and Occupational Therapy and Social Work. These specialized autism treatment programs allow highly trained Beaumont professionals to individualize critical and timely treatment based on the needs of a particular child.
The multidisciplinary approach offered at Beaumont makes sure that appropriate assessment, diagnosis and treatment is available for families and children experiencing the challenging effects of autism.
More than 30,000 children are diagnosed each year with an autism spectrum disorder, a pervasive developmental disorder that causes behavioral rigidity or restrictions and affects a child's ability to communicate and socialize. Join Stefani Hines, M.D., and Lori Warner, Ph.D., of the Beaumont Center for Human Development's HOPE Center as they discuss early signs of the condition, diagnostic techniques and treatments.
By combining one or more of these many autism treatment programs, representing a variety of respected and differing approaches to intervention, Beaumont's experienced and highly skilled physicians and clinicians can modify treatment as a child grows, progresses and becomes more involved with family, friends and the educational opportunities in the community.
