Three years ago, the Hebrew University established Israel’s first university-based Autism Center, designed to integrate and advance research, training, clinical services, and community engagement for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. The education and services the Center provides are vital to progress in ASD research
ASD is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder occurring in 1% of the global population. The Hebrew University Autism Center’s physical home will be on HU’s Mount Scopus campus in Jerusalem. The building will serve as a hub where researchers, clinicians, and stakeholders can connect and where collaborative, international, and interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach will take place.
