JMU Autism Center
Inter-Professional Autism Clinic
The Inter-Professional Autism Clinic provides in-depth multi-disciplinary assessment and intervention for children ages 2-7 years old with Autism or suspected Autism. The clinic is staffed with a licensed occupational therapist, a licensed speech and language pathologist, and a licensed clinical psychologist who is also a board certified behavior analyst, in addition to supervised graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in each of these academic programs. The curriculum of the weekly program reflects an approach that merges intervention methods from these disciplines and can be individualized to meet each child’s unique needs. It will include opportunities for participation in individual as well as small and large group activities that are facilitated through a collaborative approach.
