List of Programs
Autism Insurance Resource Center
The Autism Insurance Resource Center is a program for consumers, providers, employers, and educators on issues related to medical insurance for autism treatment.
CANDI is dedicated to biomarker discovery, neuroimaging, and treatment studies of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders and intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism and fragile X.
The Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (CANDO) provides comprehensive clinical services to children with autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
The CANS Program offers training, certification, and support to Medicaid-funded behavioral health professionals in Massachusetts who serve children under the age of 21.
The Center for Developmental Disabilities Evaluation and Research (CDDER), based at the Shriver Center, provides valuable research, evaluation and training services in order to enhance the quality of supports and services for people with intellectual and developmental disability.
Division of Neuroinformatics
Neuroinformatics concerns itself with the information infrastructure (data, computation, models, results) that underlies neuroscience research. In collaboration with the CANDI program, we are searching for brain features that correlate with or predict various developmental outcomes.
Healthy People/Healthy Communities
The Healthy People/Healthy Communities Division at the Shriver Center is devoted to promoting and supporting healthy lifestyles in people with IDD.
INDEX Technical Services provides web development, e-learning development, and accessibility consulting.
Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) provides graduate-level interdisciplinary training to improve the health of children and youth with developmental disabilities.
Pathways to Inclusive Health Care Program is an innovative program that trains future healthcare professionals to work with disabled populations.
Siblings of individuals with disabilities face unique challenges, and the sibling experience tends to change over time as siblings age. At the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, we provide support to siblings and other family members of those with disabilities in a variety of ways.
Laboratory for Equity in Autism Dissemination (LEAD) Lab
The LEAD Lab studies the development, implementation, and dissemination of interventions to ensure equitable access to diagnostic and treatment services for autistic children and their families.
