Boston Medical Center receives support from CVS Caremark Charitable Trust
Date:3/24/2011

(BOSTON) Boston Medical Center (BMC) announced today that it has received a $50,000 grant for the Autism Clinic from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, the private foundation created by CVS Caremark Corporation, whose mission is to provide funding for health care, education and community involvement initiatives in CVS Caremark communities. BMC is one of 72 organizations selected from a pool of 660 applicants to receive an individual or multi-year grant for 2010.

Currently the clinic is staffed by four board certified Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians and evaluates up to six children per week for possible autism and provides ongoing care for more than 600 families.

The grant will allow the Autism Clinic to develop a written behavioral curriculum for hands-on training for parents with low income and/or limited-English proficiency. The curriculum will address the most frequent and problematic areas of daily living for families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The grant will also provide resources for additional intensive skill building services for individuals who participate in seminars and require continued support and guidance. Additionally, an additional Education Specialist will be hired, thereby doubling the Clinic's capacity to meet the demand for educational advocacy services.

"The critical support services that we are able to provide families with a child on the autism spectrum are vital to the care we deliver," said Augustyn, a pediatrician at BMC. "Families at BMC often face a myriad of challe
