Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders and the Child Development Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary care focusing on evidence based treatment, education, research and advocacy for children with the diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD.)

Our mission is to provide assistance to every child and family affected by ASD who is in need.

What are Autism Spectrum Disorders?

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a group of neurologically based developmental conditions that are characterized by delays in three areas: language and communication, socialization, and repetitive and ritualistic behaviors.

ASDs include autism, Asperger’s, and pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). These are spectrum disorders, and for each child the severity of symptoms in each area can range from mild to severe.

It is estimated that ASDs occur in 1 in 68 children. Structured, comprehensive interventions can significantly improve a child’s quality of life.
