The NewYork-Presbyterian Autism Task Force is a multidisciplinary group of doctors, nurses, and allied healthcare providers dedicated to educating the community about autism care. The NewYork-Presbyterian Autism Task Force is a collaboration across NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. The members of this task force represent all major hospital campuses across the NewYork-Presbyterian enterprise. Our goal is to create autism-friendly hospitals and facilities by educating faculty and staff on the intricacies of treating patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Furthermore, we strive to educate and connect our patients with trusted resources from the surrounding community. By building partnerships with local autism service agencies, we hope to expand support and quality care for our patients and their families.
