From ASD Diagnosis to Enrollment

Receiving an autism diagnosis is a life-altering experience for any family. However, we believe autism can be managed through early intervention and ABA therapy protocols. We give families hope their child can live successful and independent lives. We’re here to help!

I Suspect My Child May Have Autism Spectrum Disorder

If you suspect your child may have Autism Spectrum Disorder, you should have them evaluated by a Clinical Psychologist as soon as possible. Do not delay. Early intervention is key to success.

During the Evaluation

Our psychologist will meet with your family to gather background information and hear your concerns in order to prepare your child for the ADOS-2. This non-invasive test is considered the gold standard for diagnosing autism.

It is a play-based assessment that provides the psychologist an opportunity to observe any symptoms of autism as your child interacts socially, communicates, and plays. Most children enjoy the assessment! 

Following the assessment, the psychologist will meet with the family to give feedback on the diagnosis, answer questions, and discuss next steps. The entire appointment usually takes two to three hours.

My Family Has Just Received An Autism Diagnosis

There are numerous therapies geared to help combat autism: Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy. You should immediately begin your research and start looking for services. Most providers (including Autism ETC) have lengthy waiting lists.

Get on as many lists as possible and schedule services for your child. Early intervention is key.

Our goal is to prepare children with autism to enter the school system for the first time or to equip children for whom school was not a good fit with the necessary skills to return to the typical school environment. We strive to help each child realize their fullest potential.
