Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities CADD Services

CADD offers each family and individual comprehensive testing, multi-disciplinary evaluation and diagnosis, leading to a customized treatment plan for each individual.

Care for Individuals With Autism and Developmental Disabilities


We are committed to providing state-of-the-art, lifelong care for individuals with autism and developmental disabilities. Improving the health of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or developmental disabilities (DD) requires an early and accurate diagnosis using a multidisciplinary approach, ongoing care, advocacy and collaboration with other providers. Clients who complete the Multidisciplinary Evaluation process with a well-established diagnosis of either ASD or DD may be internally referred to CADD Clinical Services or Consultation Services.

We offer center-based services that include diagnostics, short-term consultation and ongoing treatment. We also offer community-based services, which include ABA Adult Behavior Support through county waivers and group homes. Community-based services are available to Lancaster County residents.
