What We Treat

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects various behaviors, such as a child’s ability to communicate and interact with others. As a result, children with autism may have social challenges. Parents or caregivers may notice signs and symptoms before the child is 2, but the most obvious symptoms begin to appear between 2 and 3 years of age.

Marcus Autism Center is a not-for-profit organization and subsidiary of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta that impacts more than 9,000 children living with autism every year.
