Help for Autism

The Institute for child development at the Joseph Sanzari Children’s Hospital at the Hackensack University Medical Center has initiated a ‘Medical Home for Autism‘.  The ‘Medical Home‘ establishes partnerships between patients, clinicians, workshops, support groups and resources for children with autism and their families.  The “Medical Home” acts as a central source of health and wellness for the whole family, providing leading edge care.

Tenafly Pediatrics will be active participants in this important and needed initiative.  If you click the link below you will see information about some of the services and programs that are available.  You can also call the Institute for more information at 551-996-2256.
