Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder affecting an individual’s communication, socialization, and behavior. It is believed to have a genetic basis with a course influenced by environmental events.
Our primary objective is to determine whether or not you or your child is on the autism spectrum. Autism testing does not always guarantee a clear diagnosis, we will do everything we can to answer the questions and concerns you have about your or your child’s development and functioning. Our comprehensive assessment will gather information about an individual’s gifts, abilities, and areas of need that they can improve on. Together, we can come up with a plan to meet the individual’s needs and your preferences as a family. If your child is nonverbal, we accept and accommodate multiple forms of communication. including written language, AAC, PECS, and picture cards. We do our best to minimize transitions, prepare for transitions ahead of time, use communication tools preferred by the child, and give breaks when needed.
