We provide comprehensive evaluations for autism that go beyond the 'gold standard'. Our team of experts take the time to listen and help identify the unique strengths of individuals and families that encourage growth. We understand how alarming it can be to have concerns about your child's development. We strive to help you understand, and most importantly, learn what support is available, how to determine what may work for your family, and how to determine its quality.
Prior to your visit, you will be sent new patient paperwork to complete online. These documents include three discipline specific questionnaires, which will be reviewed before you arrive for the evaluation. Please include as much detail as you can; your answers provide the foundation for an in-depth discussion of family history and concerns during the interview portion of the evaluation.
During the evaluation, all family members/caregivers and clinicians will all be in the same room. Parents participant in interviews while the child participants in evaluations with speech and occupational therapy, under the direct observation of the physician. There will be a 30-minute break while the clinicians collate their findings, then they will meet with you to discuss the diagnosis, available resources, and recommended care plan.
Evaluations last three hours and are held on Tuesdays at 9am. Your child should take any currently prescribed medication as usual. To schedule, please complete the New Patient Intake.
