Our reputable and caring specialists understand the causes, symptoms, expectations, and interventions to help families adapt to raising a child with special developmental needs.

Why the Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute?

Our team bridges the gap between behavioral and medical diagnoses to treat the œwhole patient. Many families face a diagnostic odyssey in which they pursue answers and effective treatments.

ADMI’s vision is to expand and seamlessly integrate clinical services, research, education, and family support through a multidisciplinary team that includes specialists in neurodevelopmental pediatrics, genomic medicine, psychology, speech-language pathology, radiology, and education.

ADMI helps families connect the dots by bringing together unique expertise under one roof:


Patient care

We approach neurodevelopmental disorders from the perspective of the individual patient, and we consider both behavioral and medical diagnoses as we tailor individual treatment plans.

Innovation and research

We believe that the only way to provide the best clinical care is to simultaneously investigate the causes of developmental disorders and the latest in proven therapies to treat our patients' special developmental needs.

Education and support

ADMI supports its community by providing community events, family support activities, and trainings for families and educators.

Why is ADMI different?

We have a team of specialists across many different disciplines under one roof. Our team works together to treat the "whole patient." This means that we evaluate both behavioral and medical symptoms. Discussions with our reputable and caring staff of specialists can have a significant impact on helping families adapt to raising a child with special developmental needs.

 

We provide personalized care and tailored treatment recommendations.

We believe that clinical care, innovation and education are all a part of the same process. To our team, care and innovation are one in the same, and we consider our families an integral part of our team. You can help us investigate the underlying causes of neurodevelopmental disorders by participating in our research studies.

 

What are we studying?

We have a series of research initiatives designed to improve and expedite the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with developmental disorders.

Donate to ADMI

Each month, ADMI receives dozens of questions from families and professionals seeking information, services, suggestions, and support. Often, the call is from a parent who has just learned of a genetic diagnosis in his or her child. Other times, the inquiry is from a teacher or therapist looking for syndrome-specific suggestions on how to address behavioral challenges in the classroom. Whatever the need, ADMI is there to guide, support, encourage, and empower. We are unique in our ability to bridge the gap between the complex science of medical genetics and the practical, real life needs of our patients and their families. Will you help?
