"Doctors’ visits were always a nightmare for my family...”
~Tammi (Parent)

The Autism Friendly Initiative is inspired by the experiences of our patients, caregivers, clinicians, and staff.

Patients with ASD have unique sensory and communication needs, which can make navigating the fast-paced and over-stimulating hospital environment a challenge. The Autism Friendly Initiative aims to help meet these needs and create a calmer and more effective care environment for patients.
