Intellectual Disabilities and Autism Unit

The Intellectual Disabilities and Autism Unit at Sheppard Pratt’s Towson campus is a safe and welcoming seven-bed inpatient unit that is designed for the treatment of adults with severe autism spectrum disorder or a severe intellectual disability.

This highly specialized unit is designed for crisis stabilization; our goal is to move individuals to a less-intensive level of care as soon as it is safe to do so. While staying on our unit, individuals receive individualized care with a high level of supervision; we offer a high staff-to-patient ratio, which we have found is most effective for this unique population.
