Need a Diagnosis?

To begin any type of autism therapy, a formal evaluation and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is required. If your child has not yet received an evaluation, we will connect you with a qualified provider to get an appointment with little to no wait.

Not ready? Complete an autism screening test to find out if further evaluation is needed.
