Pediatrics – Neurology


The Autism Program

Autism is a life-changing and family-altering developmental disorder that afflicts one in every 152 children born, a 19-fold increase since 1982. The Division of Pediatric Neurology at Boston Medical Center is committed to helping such children – and we see many each week – in all possible ways. Boston Medical Center is part of the Autism Consortium Boston, a collaborative effort of many talented investigators searching for genetic causes of infantile autism.

Dr. Karl Kuban, Chief of the Pediatric Neurology Division at BMC, has been leading an NIH-supported study on extremely low gestational age newborns, with part of that work dedicated to exploring a possible relationship between premature birth and later development of autism. Dr. Paul Rosman has studied the neuroradiological underpinnings of this heterogeneous and challenging disorder.
