Our Approach to Care

Doctor with Young Boy | Duke Autism

The Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development strives to provide exceptional, compassionate care to individuals with autism and related disabilities and their families so that each individual will realize his or her fullest potential. Our team collaborates with a wide range of other autism providers at Duke and is committed to offering state-of-the-art, coordinated care that is compassionate and responsive to the needs of each person and family. At Duke, continuity of care begins from the first concern during screening at a Duke primary care clinic through access to specialized diagnosis and treatment and a wide range of sub-specialty services. The Center is located in the same building as the Duke Child and Family Study Center which provides access to a wide range of clinicians who specialize in conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders, and eating disorders.  We have recently expanded our services and have opened a new interdisciplinary autism clinic.  A list of Duke autism care providers can be found here.
