A Program of Mercy Kids

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of developmental challenges that may affect social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication. Early diagnosis is important because early intervention can help a child develop more typical language and social skills.

The Mercy Kids Autism Center in St. Louis provides a comprehensive, child-centered approach to autism treatment, including:

  • Diagnosis and assessment
  • Medical consultation
  • Physical, occupational, speech and nutrition therapy
  • Intensive early intervention program (18 months to kindergarten eligibility)
  • Social communication groups

Our team is led by board-certified specialists in neurodevelopmental disabilities and applied behavior analysis. These physicians are supported by experienced nurses, therapists, audiologists and dietitians - all working together to create a personalized approach that meets the needs of each child and each family.

How can you tell if your child has autism?
