Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

The nationally recognized UT Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders has provided group and individual therapy for patients and families touched by autism for more than 30 years.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - sometimes referred to as Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) - encompasses a broad definition of autism that includes related disabilities. ASD negatively affects communication, social interaction and learning. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, 1 out of 68 children are diagnosed with ASD in the United States each year, and many more exhibit some symptoms or are suspected of having the disorder. Early intervention is key to managing ASD.

Our skilled clinical staff and faculty experts are nationally recognized and work closely with children and families to develop and strengthen their communication skills. Our innovative programming is designed to reflect current knowledge in the area of ASD, as well as the individual needs of each child or adult.

Adult Social Communication Group
Individuals with ASD often struggle with social communication issues. The social communication demands of college and work, especially for a young adult with Asperger Syndrome, can be a significant obstacle to achieving personal goals.

The Adult Social Communication Group supports young adults from ages 18 to 30 in developing important skills necessary for employment success.
