A Message From CHOP Autism Pediatrics/Psychiatry - (Team CAPP)

Who is Team CAPP? We are the clinical departments and divisions that care for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Department of Pediatrics is comprised of 18 medical divisions committed to excellence and innovation in pediatric care, research, education, and advocacy. Within the Department, the Divisions of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) and Neurology provide diagnostic and ongoing care to patients with autism spectrum disorders. The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (DCAPBS) provides an interdisciplinary approach to improving the behavioral health and development of children and their families, and advances knowledge through excellent clinical care, research, training and advocacy. DCAPBS, DBP, and Neurology collaborate with divisions and disciplines across the Department and the institution more generally, in clinical care, research, teaching, and advocacy efforts to ensure breakthrough care and research. We treat patients from early childhood to young adulthood, supporting patients and their families in accessing appropriate treatments and services as well as addressing other common medical and behavioral conditions that are commonly experienced by individuals with autism spectrum disorder. DBP sees patients at 3550 Market Street in Philadelphia, and Neurology cares for patients both at 3550 Market St and on the CHOP main campus at 3401 Civic Center Blvd in Philadelphia. Both divisions also see patients in several of the CHOP Specialty Care Centers located in the Philadelphia and New Jersey suburbs. DCAPBS sees patients both at 3440 Market St, on the CHOP main campus at 3401 Civic Center Blvd in Philadelphia as well as in the Specialty Care Centers. All 3 groups partner with the CHOP Center for Autism Research as well as several community organizations.
