What Sets Us Apart

Autism spectrum disorder encompasses a group of complex neurological and developmental disorders that affect brain development and cause social, communication, and behavioral challenges. People with the condition have difficulty with social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and may exhibit repetitive behaviors or have restricted interests. Signs of autism spectrum disorder begin to appear during early childhood and typically last throughout a person’s life. 

Specialists at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, offer expert diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. They can recommend a variety of treatment options to help a child learn the social and communication skills necessary in everyday activities.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Most children with autism spectrum disorder need a combination of treatments to make developmental progress. No single treatment is equally effective for all children. Experts at the Child Study Center may recommend several treatments, including behavioral therapy and medication.
