UM Autism Programs
The University of Miami Autism Programs
Every child is unique and autism affects every family differently. Proper treatment of autism and related exceptionalities requires a coordinated team approach to address the often complex medical, behavioral and learning challenges. The University of Miami (UM) Autism Programs have specialists to address every aspect of autism spectrum disorders, from diagnosis and treatment to research and public policy.
What distinguishes University of Miami programs is our interdisciplinary collaboration of world-renowned experts. Working as a team, we provide integrated, family-centered care to those affected by autism spectrum disorders. Our aim is to make leading-edge research and clinical services available, through “one-stop shopping,” to all South Florida families.
There are two intake offices that help guide families to the resources of the University of Miami. One is located at the Mailman Center for Child Development, and the other at the University of Miami-NSU CARD. Specialists and affiliated programs are located at the Medical and Coral Gables campuses, the Kendall Practice, and throughout the community.
The Importance of Coordinated Care
Our experienced, interdisciplinary team works together to develop and deliver a coordinated plan of care, unique to each child. A critical component of University of Miami Autism Programs is the assignment of a care coordinator to each family. The Family Care Coordinator serves as a liasion in arranging services with providers in the university and the broader community, and supporting the needs of the child and family.
