The Autism Program at Boston Medical Center

Our Mission

Boston Medical Center's Autism Resource Program assists and empowers those affected by autism spectrum disorders through direct patient support, provider education and community based trainings in a culturally competent manner by offering high quality and comprehensive care to all, regardless of status or ability to pay.

Join Us for Autism Awareness Day

Autism Awareness Day is an opportunity for parents and professionals to network and learn more about the leading resources available to families in the Boston community. We'll be featuring programs such as the Federation for Children with Special Needs, Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester, TILL Autism Support Center, Boston Police Department North Star Program, Boston University’s Center for Autism Research Excellence and more!

By bringing together autism organizations, we give a voice to individuals who are undiagnosed, misunderstood and looking for help. Please join us in our effort to inspire compassion, hope and empowerment.

Background

The diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder presents a uniquely complex set of challenges for families and the clinicians responsible for their care. There is no identified single cause, no known cure, nor any one prescribed treatment that can predict optimal outcomes for all children. Families affected by ASD confront a variety of barriers toward getting needed services for their children. This includes systemic barriers, such as obtaining diagnostic appointments and securing treatment in a resource-limited economy. Many families seen at BMC are low-income, immigrant families who have the additional challenge of facing cultural, linguistic, educational, or other social barriers. To address this challenge, The Autism Resource Program assists and empowers those affected by ASDs through direct patient support, provider education and community based trainings in a culturally competent manner by offering high quality and comprehensive care to all, regardless of status or ability to pay.
