Providing individualized, research-based assessment and clinical services.
The UT Physicians Pediatric Center for Autism and Related Conditions is part of the Dan L Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Program at the Children’s Learning Institute (CLI).
We recognize that the challenges faced by children with developmental concerns are not always linked to a simple medical diagnosis. These are complex neurodevelopmental issues in which multiple developmental concerns likely overlap and require a comprehensive look at every child. This understanding guides our approach to utilizing patient-centered, evidence-based methods in our diagnostic evaluations and our treatment recommendations.

How We Evaluate
We understand that parents and caretakers are the experts on their children. This understanding provides the foundation for how we team works collaboratively with families in the diagnostic evaluation and ongoing follow-up of every child. The evaluation includes consultation with parents and caretakers to understand their child’s strengths as well as areas needing support. Depending on the concerns, we work to gain a comprehensive understanding of your child’s needs using:
We provide recommendations if needed for further medical work-up or other evidence-based therapeutic interventions. We strive to make the diagnostic evaluation process as comfortable as possible for children and parents, as we know it can be stressful to have concerns about your child.
