rves children ages 8 and under. The Center for Autism and Developmental Disorders is a specialized clinical program of Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC) / Department of Psychiatry and generally serves children of school age and older. The NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE) research provides state-of-the science research on the cognitive and neurological basis of ASD. Collectively, the Pittsburgh ATN offers: 1) comprehensive evaluations for children and adolescents suspected of autism; 2) a full range of behavioral services from early intensive behavioral interventions to school consultation; 3) referral coordination to a full array of pediatric subspecialty areas and ancillary services; 4) management of psychopharmacology treatments; 5) family support services; and 6) extensive research opportunities. The Autism Center and the affiliated clinical service, Child Development Unit (CDU) serves 2000 new patients and diagnoses over 500 children with ASD annually. The Autism Center and CDU are staffed by developmental / behavioral pediatricians, psychologists, nurse practitioners and experienced research staff trained in the ADOS and ADI-R. As a division within the Department of Pediatrics, there is well-established access to other pediatric subspecialty areas (sleep medicine, neurology, gastroenterology, genetics, immunology, and endocrinology) as well as ancillary services (speech and language, OT, PT, nutrition). The Center for Autism and Developmental Disorders in the Department of Psychiatry at WPIC provides comprehensive services to over 500 children and adolescents, 725 adult outpatients, and 500 in-patients annually. The total number of children and adolescents evaluated and/or treated within the two clinics represents 25-30% of those with ASD in the region. The Pittsburgh site is a participating center in the HRSA-funded AIR-P nutrition study and iron biomarker study.
