The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Bradley Hospital in Rhode Island offers unique and highly specialized clinical services for children and adolescents between the ages of 2 and 21 who show signs of serious emotional and behavioral problems in addition to a developmental disability, such as autism, Asperger's or intellectual disability.
The center’s staff treats more than 600 new patients each year. The center offers a variety of services, including outpatient, inpatient and home-based treatment, as well as alternative schooling options and community-based residential programs. The center also supports autism research.
The center's staff is highly experienced and professionally trained in the area of developmental disabilities and psychiatric disorders.
The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities' model of care emphasizes family involvement as well as continuity of care across its various treatment settings. Regardless of where a patient is transferred within the program (inpatient, school, residential, home-based or outpatient), the treatment team remains unchanged. Patients and their families keep the same doctors, nurses, social workers and therapists.
Our continuum of care model results in a seamless transition of patients across treatment settings. We believe that continuity of care is critical to effective treatment and that it is among the key factors responsible for producing favorable treatment outcomes.
