dc.description.abstract This report provides criteria and guidance for the planning and programming of comprehensive Autism Treatment, Resource, and Support Centers (ATRSCs), with the goal of providing a new, synergistic approach to the treatment of autism that is based on a holistic, family‐centered model of care, in order to improve outcomes for patients and families. A combined research methodology is used to state the case for these facilities. Background on autism, treatments, support services, and existing facilities is provided. Historical and qualitative data are analyzed to develop the criteria, and a facility design is provided to show a sample of the application of the criteria. Additional resources are provided in the Appendices. This report is intended to provide a tool to the design and construction industry for the development of autism treatment facilities.
