Autism Diagnosis and Psychological Evaluations for Toddlers, Children, Adolescents and Adults

We provide comprehensive autism-specific diagnostic assessments. We use several state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). The evaluation consists of assessment driven observation and interaction with your child, assessment of critical developmental domains, records review, and parent and caregiver interviews. A comprehensive report is provided that includes diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations. A follow-up session is offered to parents to review evaluation results.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

If your child is experiencing academic challenges, behavioral issues, emotional struggles, or developmental delays, a neuropsychological evaluation can be an invaluable tool to gain a deeper understanding of their cognitive and emotional functioning. Neuropsychological evaluations are thorough and specialized assessments conducted by a neuropsychologist to evaluate brain functions, cognitive abilities, emotional well-being, and behavioral patterns. This evaluation involves a series of standardized tests, interviews, observations, and assessments. The comprehensive report can be used as a “bridge to service” and includes extensive and specific recommendations that will assist you in obtaining tailored interventions. Reports can be used for diagnostic clarity, school placement or planning, as well as accommodations for testing. A follow-up meeting to review the results of the report and to answer questions is provided.

Psychoeducational Evaluations

If you are looking for an independent evaluation of your child’s learning, social, and emotional needs to use for IEP/504 planning, to understand a recent academic decline, or to evaluate effectiveness or need for specialized educational services, a psychoeducational evaluation can be helpful. Psychoeducational evaluations involve a series of standardized tests, observations, and interviews designed to provide insights into your child’s strengths, weaknesses, and unique learning style. Evaluation results are presented in a comprehensive report that includes educational and behavioral recommendations and can be used to determine eligibility for services. Both school districts and parents can contact us regarding this service. A follow-up meeting to review the results of the report and to answer client/caregiver questions is provided.
