Autism

Autism is a neurological and developmental disorder that usually appears during the first three years of life. A child with autism appears to live in his/her own world, showing little interest in others, and a lack of social awareness. The focus of an autistic child is a consistent routine and includes an interest in repeating odd and peculiar behaviors. Autistic children often have problems in communication, avoid eye contact, and show limited attachment to others. However, many persons with autism excel consistently on certain mental tasks (i.e., counting, measuring, art, music, memory).

Locations

NewYork-Presbyterian offers treatment for autism at its Center for Autism and the Developing Brain at NewYork-Presbyterian's Westchester Division, an expansive, park-like campus in White Plains, New York.

The Center is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in late 2012 or early 2013. Until then, limited clinical services are available at our temporary location (Bard House, on the Westchester Division campus). In addition, we offer ASD assessments via participation in our research studies.

When the Center is fully open, we will be able to accept insurance (including Medicaid for some groups) and offer a wider range of clinical services and research opportunities.

White Plains is about 25 miles north of New York City and is easily accessible by car or train. It is also accessible from Connecticut and New Jersey and is within minutes of the Westchester County Airport.
