Autism: Psychology and Neurology Working Together

We are very happy to announce a very unique diagnostic and treatment option for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and ADHD. In conjunction with HCA’s new Women’s and Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Specialty Clinic, Athena is part of a new Neurobehavioral clinic. This will enable families and children to be seen by a Pediatric Neurologist and Psychologist in the same visit. We are starting this venture with Dr. Javier Valero-Fonseco, a Pediatric Neurologist, and it has been a joy to work with him. Today was our second day of clinic. The ability to discuss and work hand in hand with the neurologist provides a unique level of care. We are hopeful that as these efforts progress we can add: Applied Behavior Analysis, Advocacy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and other integrative services to the clinic. We will keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, if you are interested in scheduling, please call our office at 320-1155 for more information.
