A Tailored Approach to Understanding Your Child
Every autism evaluation at our center is personalized. We begin by gathering a detailed developmental and medical history, as well as an understanding of your child’s current functioning levels. This includes assessing social skills, emotional and behavioral functioning, communication abilities, adaptive behavior, and executive functioning. Our goal is to gain a comprehensive view of your child’s world.
Collaborative and Comprehensive Assessment
Our assessments are not just about tests; they are about understanding your child in their entirety. This includes interviews with you, caregivers, teachers, and others who play a significant role in your child’s life. Our standardized assessments are carefully chosen to evaluate the presence of autism characteristics, always considering the individual’s age, tolerance for testing, and specific needs.
Navigating the Journey with Compassion and Expertise
The process, ranging from 6-10 hours of face-to-face assessment, is conducted with the utmost sensitivity to your child’s comfort and tolerance levels. Our evaluations are comprehensive, including multiple interviews and observations. After the assessment, we provide a detailed feedback session to discuss the results, offering insights and recommendations tailored to your child’s unique needs.

Empowering Families in the Autism Journey

Understanding autism is a crucial step in providing the right support and interventions. Our evaluations are designed not just to diagnose but also to empower. Whether it is a first time diagnosis or a re-evaluation to evaluate functioning and services needed, we utilize a series of assessments in order to diagnose or eliminate autism spectrum disorder in people showing signs or symptoms typically related to autism. We provide families with insights into their child’s unique strengths and challenges, helping to navigate the complexities of autism with knowledge and confidence.
