Autism Treatment Program achieves remarkable results

One family describes their experience of feeling like prisoners in their own homes before their son entered the Autism Treatment Program. Now the Shepherd’s son goes to a regular school. “How much more could you ask for,” Bonnie Shepherd says.

The Autism Treatment Program at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago depends on charitable gifts to offset the cost of care for families who would otherwise be unable to afford it. The Pediatric Developmental Center strives to provide services to every family in need regardless of ability to pay. We are aided in this effort by private grants and philanthropy. To help a family in need, please visit to make a gift.
