The power of coordination in treatment outcomes.
Oak Hill School has partnered with the UCSF to investigate just how successful coordinated care can be for improving outcomes for young people with autism.
What distinguishes Oak Hill is how our students are actively engaged (and directly benefit from) the newest and most promising developments in autism research.
We are studying and tracking synchronized and highly personalized communication between parents and our educational, medical, and psychosocial teams. Data is constantly collected via online surveys, and then outcome data is tracked and monitored.
This is a crucial step in developing evidence-based targeted treatments in a school setting.
This work is led by Dr. Robert Hendren, Chairman of the Board of Oak Hill School and a UCSF Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Co-Director of the UCSF Dyslexia Center, and Director of the Neurodevelopmental Translational Outcomes Research Program and Steven Bent, MD, Professor of Medicine, UCSF, PRONTO Research Director
The ON-GOING study allows Oak Hill School to:
- Create and effectively use an online data capture system to track and monitor outcome data gathered from students, a crucial step in developing evidence-based targeted treatments in a school setting.
- Develop an integrated, comprehensive, and collaborative approach to providing care to young people with autism.
