TKOC sees approximately 600 children annually for autism evaluations and 2700 children with ASD annually for medical follow-up visits and treatment. TKOC provides an outreach coordinator and dedicated social worker who have developed a series of parent training opportunities, and are available to all families of children with ASD for more individualized support when needed.

The Developmental Neuropsychiatry Program (DNP) at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center (NYPH-CUMC) has been a site for the Autism Treatment Network since 2005. The DNP was developed through the Department of Psychiatry, but integrates core services with Pediatric Neurology and Pediatrics. The DNP sees a highly diverse population including 17% Hispanic, 11% African-American, 11% Asian and 11% mixed race. In addition to their core ATN specialists in neurology, pediatrics, psychiatry, GI, sleep and genetics, Columbia offers highly qualified experts in pain and immunology. The site's designated neurology expert has been a leader in network efforts to develop EEG and MRI guidelines and provides site leadership for the recently funded, multi-site AIR-P epileptiform study.
