A Call for Support

We are committed to creating a physical space to match the developmental and behavior needs of our patients and their families.

Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Clinical Services, including The Levine Clinic, will provide a safe, accessible, and nurturing care environment that promotes family involvement, advocacy, and empowerment. The space will be comfortable for children, providing calming spots, and limiting extra noise, light and stimulation. Specialized spaces for medical visits, feeding therapy, developmental testing and behavior treatments will provide ideal care. In our patient library, family mentors will work individually with parents to provide needed resources and support. Our goal, with your generosity, is for the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Clinical Services to become the nation’s state-of-the-art model for outpatient care for patients with ASD and other disorders.

Autism Hope In The News

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is usually recognized early in childhood and has symptoms that persist throughout a person's life. Parents of children with ASD will tell you they have all the same challenges as other parents and a few more. It can be lonely, expensive, and exhausting, but they also say that in Rochester there's a lot to be hopeful about.

URMC has partnered with WHEC-TV to bring an autism awareness series called "Autism Hope" profiling the resources available to families affected by autism in the Rochester community.

Dedicated to Helping Children and Families

The new Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Clinical Services location, including the William and Mildred Levine Autism Clinic, will immeasurably improve the way children and youth with autism, and other developmental disabilities, experience their care. The services that patients need, and the providers they see, will be together in one space to provide care that is truly patient and family oriented. Our sensory waiting rooms will provide the quiet space our patients require, patient rooms will be less distracting, and we will have several “touch down spots” where patients who are experiencing difficulty will be able to calm themselves in private alcoves.
