Together, we can create life changing outcomes. 

The Henry Ford Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) is a world-class center committed to improving the lives of children and youth with special health care needs by providing a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, evidence-based and accessible ABA therapy services, and a medical home standard of primary care.

If you have a concern about your child’s development, please schedule an appointment with your child’s doctor and ask that a Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised (MCHAT-R) screening tool be completed.

Thank you for your interest in the Henry Ford Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities. For more information on the Center or to ask the team a question, please call: (313) 972-9009
