Autism Spectrum Disorder Testing
Autism Spectrum Disorder testing is a comprehensive evaluation of an individual’s social and developmental abilities. Often children who are referred for this type of testing have been struggling with social communication, engagement, and acceptance. They often struggle to make and keep friends and may become fixated on single topics. They also may insist on strict adherence to routines and schedules as well as display unusual repetitive movements. The Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluation involves a clinical interview, comprehensive review of history, the administration of assessments, and feedback of the results, including recommendations.
Testing will provide a comprehensive understanding of an individual’s strengths and weaknesses within social, behavioral, and developmental contexts. Furthermore, an accurate diagnosis can help families access appropriate services to better manage their child’s individual needs. With this information we can make determinations about diagnostic impressions and provide customized recommendations for therapy, treatments, educational assistance, and medications.
