Welcome to Adult Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Improving Patient Outcomes

The Penn Adult Neurodevelopmental Disorders program was founded in 1999 with a commitment to excellence in both clinical service and research in the areas of Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Social Learning Disorders (SLD), which includes Asperger Syndrome (AS) and high functioning autism (HFA).

The program provides state-of-the-art comprehensive diagnostic assessment and evidence-based clinical care, including medication management, psychotherapy (cognitive-behavior therapy, in particular), coaching, and psychoeducational group programs.

Program faculty and staff are committed to conducting and disseminating research and providing education to other health professionals and to the general public about adult neurodevelopmental disorders. Our treatment team consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, researchers, an executive skills coach, clinical coordinator, and trainees.
