Understanding Autism 

THE CHALLENGES WE’RE WORKING ON

In America, approximately 1 in 54 children are diagnosed with Autism each year. However, the number of austistic people on a global scale is unknown because of the difficulty of diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

To help spread awareness of Autism worldwide, and to further research and understanding, we established The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s (HU) interdisciplinary Autism Center.

This center is a first for Israel and leads the Middle East in research, training, clinical care, and community services for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. 

A Spectrum of Medical Expertise

HOW WE’RE SOLVING THEM

The Autism Center is anchored in the Faculty of Medicine and brings together professionals from the Schools of Social Work and Education. The center also draws upon the expertise of specialists in the fields of Genetics, Neurology, Neonatology, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacology, Psychology, and Metabolism and Nutrition. In addition to producing cutting-edge integrated research, the center trains professionals to work with individuals, families, and the community.

A Brighter Future on the Spectrum

THE IMPACT OF OUR WORK

The Autism Center facilitates a cross-pollination of ideas, research, and clinical experience that also extends to helping develop enlightened and effective public programming and policies that offer improved support to individuals, as well as guidance for government and medical bodies addressing the challenges posed by ASD.
