Yale Developmental Disabilities Clinic

The Yale Developmental Disabilities Clinic builds on decades of experience in research and clinical services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disabilities. Founded by Dr. Fred Volkmar and directed by Dr. James McPartland, the clinic is recognized worldwide for its expertise in supporting individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluations are provided by a team of experienced clinical faculty at the Child Study Center. These evaluations take place over a two-day period and focus on diagnosis, determination of strengths and weaknesses, and informing educational programming intervention. Each evaluation has four components: psychological testing (including neuropsychological or academic assessment), speech-language testing, evaluation of adaptive functioning, and psychiatric assessment. The clinical team works together to provide a single report with a particular emphasis on recommendations for intervention and educational planning.
