The Treffert Center invites individuals, families and communities worldwide to explore the potential of the human mind, focusing on strengths rather than limitations. We seek to preserve, make available and expand the legacy of Darold Treffert, MD, an internationally respected researcher in autism, savant syndrome and related conditions.
The center offers state-of-the-art comprehensive, multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of autism, behavior, and communication disorders in children and adults. Treatment includes in-home, center-based and community-based programs.
The Treffert Center Library makes available an international library of books, videos, documentaries, journals, art works and periodicals on autism, savant syndrome, hyperlexia and other types of exceptional brain performance. The library promotes and carries out further research on these conditions, along with dissemination of reliable information about these conditions for parents, professionals, students, media and general public.
Individuals and families also benefit from all day preschool and after-school experience designed to provide a foundation for a strong mind, body and spirit based on early education focused on play, movement, self-regulation and social understanding, giving children ages three to 12 the opportunity to gain the skills and experience to reach their full potential.
