The Doctor Is In : World Autism Awareness Day

Posted: Updated:
(MyFox Detroit) - Wednesday is World Autism Awareness Day.

Join Fox 2's Deena Centofanti and a specialist from Beaumont Hospital as they discuss Autism.

About Autism:

More than 30,000 children are diagnosed each year with an autism spectrum disorder, a pervasive developmental disorder that causes behavioral rigidity or restrictions and affects a child's ability to communicate and socialize.

Beaumont Children's Hospital offers a number of clinical autism treatment programs for children on the spectrum of disorders.

These services are provided by the Center for Human Development (CHD), the Children's Speech and Language Pathology Department and the Departments of Physical and Occupational Therapy and Social Work.

These specialized autism treatment programs allow highly trained Beaumont professionals to individualize critical and timely treatment based on the needs of a particular child.

The multidisciplinary approach offered at Beaumont makes sure that appropriate assessment, diagnosis and treatment is available for families and children experiencing the challenging effects of autism.

Our Expert: 

Dr. Stefani Hines
Director, Center for Human Development, Beaumont Health System 


Dr. Hines has been with Beaumont Royal Oak for 18 years. Her specialties include Pediatrics, developmental and behavioral and her clinical interests include Asperger's Disorder, Autism, and Dyslexia. 

Today is World Autism Awareness Day

In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly declared April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) with the goal of bringing the world's attention to autism, a disorder that affects tens of millions people globally.

The most common and easiest way you can show your support for World Autism Day is by wearing blue.

    It's not just the styles that have changed with weddings over the years -- it's also the technology. Disposable cameras used to be the norm, but now there's an even simpler way for the bride and groom to get some candid photos of their special day.
