The Cody Center is a unique regional resource combining in one university-based center the capacity for:

  • Multi-disciplinary clinical services for children and adults with Autism Spectrum and related disorders  
  • An Education Institute providing graduate-level coursework and training opportunities for clinicians in medical, mental health, special education and other fields, and School Consultation Services for Long Island school districts and agencies 
  • Community services including a Resource Center, social skills and parent training programs, family workshops, and programs for young persons transitioning to adulthood

Founded in 2001, the Matt and Debra Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook University promotes excellence in clinical treatment, research, community services and education for those with Autism and related developmental disorders. As a division of the Department of Pediatrics, the Center can provide integrated medical care within the newly created Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital.
