DR. MICHAEL GRUTTADAURIA, THE CENTER FOR INTEGRATIVE AND INNOVATIVE THERAPIES (THE CIIT CENTER)
131 Sunnyside Blvd., Suite 100, Plainview
Dr. Michael Gruttadauria heads up the operations at an advanced treatment center for Autism Spectrum Disorder called The CIIT Center. The CIIT Center’s mission is to approach each child with autism as a total entity by enhancing the biomedical, neurological, nutritional, electrical, and immune system of each of our patients and combining this with occupational, physical, and speech therapies, along with applied behavioral analysis. 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.
