Autism Clinic and TAP Training Center
Specialized, experienced support in the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders
Our Autism Clinic and TAP Training Center works with people of all ages with known or suspected autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
As a regional training center for The Autism Program (TAP) of Illinois Service Network, we work to enhance the lives of people with ASD through service, training and research.
Clinical and consultation services
Our team has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of ASD through the lifespan.
We’re committed to working with families, school districts, and intervention programs in the community. Some of our services include:
- Education, family, and other provider consultations
- Family treatment
- Individual therapy
- Early language learners group
- Sibling group
- Autism Spectrum People in Education (ASPiE)—a peer support group for college students with ASD
- Classroom consultations for teachers
TAP at UIC plays an important role in training the next generation of professionals in the field.
We feel it’s important to train students in working with individuals with ASD and their families. This includes making systems change for progressive policies regarding disabilities, developing and testing model programs, and translating research into practices that make a difference for people with disabilities.
We offer didactic, observation, and experiential learning opportunities related to working with individuals with ASD to undergraduate and graduate students and fellows from a variety of disciplines.
To increase community awareness of issues related to ASD, our staff reach out to various civic and community organizations and policy makers. In order to advocate for progressive ASD and developmental disabilities services, we also meet with various state and local policy makers.
