Physician Resources

ADMI's interdisciplinary team, in partnership with our families and referring physicians, is significantly enhancing our understanding of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, helping us ensure that each patient can reach his or her individual potential. What to consider when referring to ADMI:


ADMI's expertise is focused on the diagnosis and management of complex neurodevelopmental disorders, including:

  • Global developmental delay
  • Intellectual disability
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Genetic diagnoses that result in developmental symptoms

ADMI offers a comprehensive menu of clinical services for children and families, including:

  • Neurodevelopmental assessments
  • Psychological and educational testing
  • Genetic and medical diagnostic testing
  • Genetic counseling
  • Medication management
  • Speech-language assessments
  • Behavioral evaluations

ADMI accepts referrals for:

Children 0-4 years of age who have:

  • known or suspected developmental delays (in language, motor, social, and/or self-help skills)
  • high risk for developmental delays (i.e., genetic syndromes known to be associated with developmental disorders; prematurity; other known risk factors)

Children 5-9 years of age who have, or are suspected to have:

  • autism, intellectual disability, or other severe developmental impairments (significant deficits in language, motor, social, and/or self-help skills)
  • genetic syndromes known to be associated with developmental disorders

Children 10-18 years of age with:

  • documented autism or intellectual disability (diagnosed using valid, standardized methods); we will accept the transfer of care of children with these conditions previously followed by another provider
  • genetic syndromes known to be associated with developmental disorders

ADMI also sees individuals of any age with the following genetic conditions for which we have specific specialty clinics and / or clinical research interests:

  • Fragile X syndrome
  • Duplication 15q syndrome
  • Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion
  • Chromosome 16p11.2 deletions and duplications
  • Smith-Magenis syndrome
  • Chromosome 17q12 deletions and duplications

Other Referrals:

  • Children for whom the primary concern is ADHD or other disruptive behaviors (e.g., oppositional behavior, tantrums, conduct problems/antisocial behavior), in the absence of documented intellectual disability or ASD, should be referred to Pediatric Psychology/Psychiatry (through Geisinger in Danville or in the local area)
  • Children for whom the primary concern is anxiety, mood problems (depression, mania), possible psychosis (hallucinations, delusions) should be referred to Pediatric Psychology/Psychiatry (through Geisinger in Danville or in the local area)
  • Children with possible seizures should be referred to Pediatric Neurology
  • Children with acquired and/or obviously progressive motor/cognitive dysfunction (traumatic brain injury, new onset paralysis, stroke, etc.) should be referred to Pediatric Neurology and/or Psychology (through Geisinger in Danville or in the local area)
