About Us

The Emory Autism Center (EAC) is part of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine and the Emory Brain Health Center.

The program opened in 1991 as a public, private and University collaboration. Our aim has always focused on producing and using knowledge, strategies and tools to improve the quality of life for each person served, while increasing the capacity for support within local communities across Georgia.

In doing so, we have become a national model providing clinical, educational and medical supports to individuals with autism (ages 15 months through adulthood).  We also provide instructive guidance to family members, training to educators and professionals interested in learning how to better support children and adults with ASD and engaging learning experiences to those in the community who wish to simply create an inclusive society where one's strengths are valued.
