Middle East’s first interdisciplinary university-based autism center to open in Jerusalem

The Middle East’s first interdisciplinary university-based autism center is to be built in Jerusalem, where it will serve as the region’s largest state-of-the-art research, diagnostic and treatment center for the growing pandemic.
The planned NIS 300 million Autism Center will be jointly overseen by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Hadassah University Medical Center’s Faculty of Medicine, the Autism Daily Newscast reported on Tuesday.

“Our goal in establishing the Autism Center is to lead Israel and the Middle East in research, training, clinical services and community engagement for the benefit of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families,” said HU’s Faculty of Medicine Dean Prof. David Lichtstein.
