Autism Diagnosis Evaluations

What is it?

To access autism therapy (e.g., ABA therapy), a formal medical Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis is required. A licensed provider will conduct an evaluation which includes direct observation of your child and an interview with parents to determine whether the child has autism. Diagnostic providers will used formalized assessment tools to determine any delays in achieving milestones.
