Easterseals conducts free Autism Diagnostic Clinics in Berks County and the Lehigh Valley. Through a unique collaboration with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, both clinics provide a full tele-medicine model during the COVID pandemic. Evaluations are conducted using the TELE-ASD-PEDS.
Nancy Knoebel, Easterseals CEO says, “Telemedicine is a beneficial and convenient way for families to access medical services from industry leaders, while eliminating costly and time-consuming travel.”
To participate, children ages 18 months to three years who are receiving Early Intervention services are referred to Easterseals through Service Access & Management (SAM) or the Lehigh County Birth to Three program.
The United Way of Berks County and the Pennsylvania Department of Health provide funding in support of our clinic services.
The Law Firm of Leisawitz Heller, in partnership with Customers Bank, donated $10,000 to purchase the telecommunication technology and equipment necessary to make the clinic in Berks County possible.
