Seeking Autism friendly pediatrician and office

Jan 2014

I am needing recommendations for an autism friendly doctors and office in the Oakland /San Leandro area. We have just changed insurances from Kaiser, and while I went to a doctor on recommendation of a friend, it is clear the staff as well as the doctor has no experience with special needs kids. My son is four. And he has been receiving aba and speech therapies. I am looking for someone who understands how those therapies work: duration, etc,and can be an advocate: any recommendations are welcome. Also an office staff that can understand that my son can't wait forever in a waiting room. ASD mom

Dr. Ken Ducker in Castro Valley has a ton of experience working with kids with autism and the staff are friendly too!
