Our dedicated clinical team handles many autism services and consists of professional counselors, registered nurses, social workers and patient advocates. When you contact the CoE, you’re assigned a patient advocate who will help you get the most out of the resources we offer. Your advocate stays in close contact with your doctors, behavioral health professionals, community case managers and others to make sure you’re receiving the best care.
