Lurie Center for Autism

We’re dedicated to helping patients with autism spectrum disorder and their families to lead their best possible lives.

The Lurie Center at Massachusetts General Hospital brings together comprehensive clinical care with cross-disciplinary research to develop personalized therapies for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  

  • Since 2009, we have led the way in establishing best practices for ASD treatment, from early childhood through adulthood.  
  • Every patient is evaluated and treated by a member of our clinical team in collaboration with educational and behavioral consultants, speech-language pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists. 
  • Our translational research program gives the center unprecedented opportunities to integrate basic neuroscience research with patient care.  
  • Our highly successful, multidisciplinary Aspire Program teaches valuable life skills to children, teens and adults with high cognitive ASD and related social profiles.  

With some of the most visionary minds in medicine focused on identifying the causes of ASD and developing improved treatment options, the Lurie Center will continue to shape the future of health care for those living with ASD.
