A Range of Services to Support Your Family

At Alpine, we understand that every person with autism and their family have unique needs. With ongoing support and compassionate guidance, we customize services to help you and your child. We offer a range of clinical assessments and services that can be tailored to your individual needs.

Diagnostic Assessment

We provide comprehensive autism-specific diagnostic assessments, using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). A comprehensive report is provided that includes diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations.

Clinical Consultation

Through discussion with parents, as well as observation and interaction with your child, we will recommend a course of action including types of therapies and services that your child might need.

Autism Screening

We offer an autism screening for infants and toddlers at risk (i.e., familial history of autism) or whose parents are concerned about autism but are unsure what to look for. We will share clinical impressions and a clear path for how to proceed.

Individualized Skill-Based Assessment

Our comprehensive evaluations are grounded in best practice assessment tools (e.g. VBMAPP, ABLLS, AFLS, PEAK, etc.) and keen observation of current home and school programs.

Functional Behavior Assessment

We conduct function-based behavioral assessments to identify the variables that make problem behaviors more or less likely to occur. Our team then develops reinforcement-based plans that focus on the development of replacement and alternative responses.

Focused Behavior Treatment

Our team of BCBAs will assess your child’s situation-specific needs (e.g., visiting a doctor or dentist, getting a haircut, toilet training) and develop short-term, intensive treatment plans to address those needs.

Our compassionate clinicians are ready to support you.
