WHAT IS THE RUSH UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER FOR AUTISM ASSESSMENT RESEARCH TREATMENT AND SERVICES (AARTS)?

The  AARTS Center at Rush offers unparalleled expertise in diagnosing and  treating children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder  (ASD). A distinct advantage UAS offers is our relationship with, and  proximity to, Rush University Medical Center's AARTS program.

All residents will need some form of assessment and medical clearance from our partners at the Rush AARTS program. At the very least, we require one visit with a psychiatrist  from the AARTS program to establish a medical baseline and for admission  approval. In order to provide the safest and most appropriate  environment, we cannot admit any residents without this step. Depending on the nature of your family’s needs, we also recommend a  records review and visit with UAS Clinical Director to determine if  further psychological assessment is needed.

We feel that we can most effectively help your family if you make the best use of these resources at the start. Developing individualized programs begins with accurate assessment  data. Full disclosure of psychiatric and independent-living challenges  by families is needed in order to appropriately serve all residents  safely and effectively.
