The Merck Adult Outpatient Clinic specializes in assessing and treating adults who have autism spectrum disorder and/or intellectual disabilities. The clinic also works with adults who have developmental disabilities and co-occurring psychiatric or behavioral disorders.

Diagnostic Assessment

The Merck Adult Outpatient Clinic provides diagnostic evaluation. Staff makes special efforts to obtain medical, occupational, and other information before the screening to maximize the value of the consultation. Evaluation focuses on:
