DePelchin offers a comprehensive and family-centered approach to diagnosing and caring for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).  Our multi-disciplinary team consists of professionals from diverse backgrounds and specializations, including psychologists, counselors and speech pathologists.  We also refer to a DePelchin psychiatrist when appropriate.
