Thank you for your interest in the Autism Spectrum Disorder Interdisciplinary Diagnostic (ASDID) Clinic at the LSUHSC Human Development Center. The purpose of the ASDID clinic is two-fold:
To provide outstanding services to families of children suspected of having autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
To provide high-quality information, training, and supervision to pediatric medical residents, graduate students, professionals, and families about best practices in family partnerships and interdisciplinary teaming and evaluations.
The clinic team works together to engage in best practices for ASD assessment, diagnosis, and support for children and their families.
In addition to providing a much-needed service to the community through a comprehensive evaluation process for ASD, the ASDID clinic serves as a training experience for students and professionals in a number of disciplines. Participating disciplines may include audiology, early childhood intervention, medicine/pediatrics, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, public health, special education, and speech-language pathology.
