In December 2015 the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain opened an 8 bed inpatient unit for those ages 10-21 with an autism spectrum diagnosis. The average length of stay is typically 30-45 days, with an emphasis on medication regulation, behavior modification, and discharge planning. They are currently only taking referrals from MDs and the ER due to the intensity of an inpatient unit, but clinicians can advocate to their MD to submit a referral as long as it meets the criteria. Below are the key criteria for your reference:

The SEED Center in Stamford has announced they are once again offering social skills groups for children and youth ages 3 and up for the new year 2016. These groups are ideal if your child is having difficulty making or keeping friends; acting appropriately in social situations; initiating, maintaining, or ending a conversation; deviating from rules or routine; dealing with frustration; and/or appreciating another person's perspective or point of view.

Many families have expressed concern that their child on the spectrum, whether paying privately or thru Medicaid.  In response to this need, our dentists and staff at the Hospital for Special Care's Dental Services department have worked closely with the staff at our Autism Center to learn appropriate techniques and establish policies to better serve patients with ASD.  Special Care Dental Services opened initially in 1997 to address the critical need for dental care for underserved children in the community.
