Identification of Autism is the first step to effective intervention. We provide diagnostic assessments which can help you better understand the diagnosis as well as provide recommendations and education on opportunities for other services.
What does the assessment entail?
Autism assessments include an initial consultation and assessment (90 minutes). Much of the testing and feedback is completed by the individual, support providers and family members and returned to the therapist for interpretation and scoring. This information is then compiled in a comprehensive written report. Finally, a post-test feedback session is provided (60 – 90 minutes) in which the therapist will review all written results and make recommendations for services and treatment, if needed.
What does a disorder diagnosis mean?
In 2013, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) eliminated the many different categories of autism diagnoses and was updated to be inclusive of any individual who meets the criteria for diagnosis under one name: Autism Spectrum Disorder. The spectrum of symptoms, level of need, and severity within this diagnosis is quite extensive. Once an assessment has been completed, your therapist can better discuss what the diagnosis means for you/your child and make recommendations tailored to those identified levels and areas of need.
