Creation of a Database for the Regional Autism Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The NLM Family Foundation supported the creation of a database for the Regional Autism Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Regional Autism Center treats one of the largest populations of children with autistic spectrum disorders in the nation, and provides comprehensive, coordinated, family-centered care, while continually striving to offer a repository of knowledge, support and guidance to affected families. The creation of a database is essential to strengthening the Center’s research program and expediting collaboration and investigation of clinical and research questions facing these children and their families.
