Dr. Michael Gruttadauria heads up the operations at an advanced treatment center for Autism Spectrum Disorder called The CIIT Center.

Our comprehensive approach starts with identifying the underlying factors that may be holding the child back, not just treating their symptoms. This gives each child every opportunity to reach their potential.
