Medical Center

Physicians and other healthcare providers conduct a vast array of medical procedures, tests, and treatments.  Dental procedures and routine oral care are important to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Other healthcare providers like therapists, blood technicians, and nutritionists play an important role in keeping people healthy and strong. Common medical practices, blood draws, dental procedures, medication administration, and imaging may be difficult for individuals with ASD for many reasons. Preparation, changes in approach, and some basic accommodations can alleviate some of these related challenges. Use the tools and resources in the Medical Center to support positive care and treatment of patients with ASD.
