Discover comprehensive autism care

See your child soar to new heights

Did you know that many parents wait six months or longer to receive a diagnostic assessment for their child? Harvard Pilgrim Health Care is working with Cortica to minimize those wait times, break the cycle of fragmented services and ensure you have access to comprehensive care for autism and other neurodevelopmental diagnoses.*

Cortica is a physician-led autism services provider that offers advanced neurological therapies for children with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental differences in Massachusetts. Much like Harvard Pilgrim’s whole-person approach to health care, Cortica takes a whole-child approach to autism that treats both behavioral health needs and common co-occurring medical conditions through a centralized team of providers all under one roof.  

Cortica works differently by offering:

  • Medical care, ABA (applied behavior analysis), speech therapy, occupational therapy and more — all in one place
  • Coordinated, multidisciplinary teams at every site, led by pediatric doctors
  • Care and services at Cortica centers, by telehealth, in your home, in school and in the community
  • Autism diagnosis by an internal medical team
  • Whole child assessment and progress tracking
  • Leadership in neurodevelopment research with over 100 peer-reviewed publications
