Autism Clinic for Children 3 and Over

Vanderbilt has been designated as one of only 14 institutions in the U.S. to form the Autism Treatment Network, comprising elite centers dedicated to improving care for children and adolescents with autism through diagnosis, treatment and counseling.

Most children aged three and older will initially have a medical assessment by a pediatric nurse practitioner or a developmental pediatrician at the Autism Clinic. After that visit, they may be referred to a psychologist for more testing.
