Yale Child Study Center - Developmental Disabilities Clinic & Research

The Yale Developmental Disabilities Clinic offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary evaluations for children and adults with social disabilities, usually focussing on the issues of diagnosis and intervention.

The Child Study Center is a department at Yale University School of Medicine that brings together multiple disciplines to further the understanding of the problems of children and families. Among the many disciplines are child psychiatry, pediatrics, genetics, neurobiology, epidemiology, psychology, nursing, social work and social policy. The mission of the Center is to understand child development, social, behavioral, and emotional adjustment, and psychiatric disorders and to help children and families in need of care. The Center is unusual in its scope of research, clinical services, training programs, policy work, and much local, state, national, and international collaboration. The strengths of the Center are reflected in the breadth and integrative nature of research, clinical services and training.

Clinical Services

The Yale Child Study Center's Developmental Disabilities Clinic provides a range of services for children with pervasive developmental disorders. This clinic builds on a long tradition of research and service at Yale for children and adolescents with autism and related disorders and their families. Comprehensive evaluations are provided by a multidisciplinary team of highly experienced clinicians. These evaluations take place at the Child Study Center over a two-day period, and focus on issues of diagnosis and educational programming/intervention. Each evaluation has three components: psychological testing, speech-language testing, and a psychiatric assessment. The assessment team works together to provide a single (usually 25-30 page) report which is typically provided ten to twelve weeks after the assessment. A significant portion of the report is devoted to recommendations for intervention and educational planning. Depending on the needs in a specific case, referrals to other professionals, e.g., pediatric neurologists or geneticists, can be provided. The Yale Child Study Center does not offer ongoing treatment for pervasive developmental disorders at this time.

Toddler Clinic also provides specialized diagnostic services for children age one to three years suspected of having Autism Spectrum Disorders. The services include a comprehensive assessment of cognitive, social, communication, and adaptive skills, as well as recommendations for treatment and family support. The services are provided by faculty members of the Yale Autism Program.

In addition to long-standing clinical program for children with developmental disorders such as autism and Asperger syndrome, the Yale Child Study Center is one of the foremost research centers for autism spectrum disorders in the world. Several of our active protocols involve an assessment of your child's cognitive functioning and social communication characteristics. The assessment, an oral feedback, and written report are provided to research participants. The assessment is tailored to the research protocol but may be able to start you on your way while you still pursue a more tailored evaluation for your child through clinic.
