To all of our Parents and Caregivers…
On April 15, 2020, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised that Pediatricians and parents should no longer put off checkups, vaccines or chronic care. COVID-19 has changed medical practice as we once knew it, but we should still do the very best for our children. Continuing to offer quality care in these times is the best way to do that.
We at the One World Center for Autism are forging ahead and offering a new way to provide care. As of May 18, 2020, we are fully launching telehealth Primary Care and Autism Diagnostic Services conducted by using 2-way audio video technology. The platform is different, but the goal is the same—to provide a medical home for you and your child that offers ongoing support and quality service.
Our leaders agree. We cannot afford to wait any longer. Deferring routine visits, delays preventive services, early diagnosis and intervention, as well as expert medical guidance and counsel, all of which are critical for future good health.
If we want to prevent disease and maintain health and safety, let’s work together by creating new ways to connect for the sake of our children and our communities.

Please note that safety is our number one concern and these extended measures are to fully protect our team and all our patients and are subject to change.
We know that there is much anxiety and fear when you suspect your child may have autism. These feelings are natural and we are here to help. The first step is identification.
If there is a diagnosis of autism, we firmly believe that there is hope when parents, caregivers, and individuals living with autism have access to support, knowledge, and therapeutic interventions.
