About Us


We believe in the power of individuals, family, and community working together to maximize our collective potential.

The Kelberman Center bears the name of a family committed to excellence. Dr. Michael Kelberman and his family are dedicated to the advancement of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Realizing the tremendous impact that an ASD has on individuals and families, with 1 in 68 children in the United States currently born with the disorder, Dr. Kelberman provided leadership to a $1 million campaign to raise the startup funds for the organization, which was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2005.

Today the organization employs over 175 full and part-time staff, and provides services to more than 1000 children and adults throughout Central New York including:

  • Evaluation and Diagnosis
  • Individualized Education
  • Social and Life Skills Enhancement
  • Training and Research

The Kelberman Center provides state-of-the-art programs and services for children and adults with ASD and their families. Specialized staffing is highly trained to meet the needs of individuals with ASD and includes a pediatric neuropsychologist, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and educational and behavior specialists. Our team of professionals addresses the unique needs of both individuals and their families through various programs and services.
