The Claremont Autism Center is a clinical, research, and training program dedicated to promoting well-being in Autistic* individuals and their families. In operation for over 50 years, the Center is currently under the direction of Dr. Rachel Fenning. Adopting a neurodiversity-affirming and evidence-based approach, The Claremont Autism Center serves a large catchment area of San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Riverside, and Orange Counties.


Clinical Services

Assessment and Evaluation Clinic. Psychological assessments provide essential information needed to clarify diagnosis, identify strengths and areas of need, and guide recommendations for intervention and support. The Claremont Autism Center specializes in evaluations for autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders, including Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), intellectual disability, and language and learning disorders. We also have expertise in anxiety, emotion regulation, and behavioral difficulties. Using gold-standard, best-practice methods, we provide comprehensive evaluations for individuals from infancy through adulthood.

Intervention Services. The Claremont Autism Center currently provides social skills groups for school-age children and teens on the autism spectrum. Groups meet weekly during the academic year. We are also in the process of launching new clinical services. More information will be available soon!


Student Involvement

Student education and training are core to the mission of The Claremont Autism Center. Our staff includes graduate and undergraduate students who assist in providing clinical services under the supervision of the Director. In addition to receiving training in evidence-based practice, many students also participate in Center research activities.
