Assessment

Having a child that has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, other neurodevelopmental disorders or special needs can be confusing and overwhelming. The first step to finding the right treatment and services for you and your child is a thorough developmental assessment. Our comprehensive testing program has set the standard for autism diagnosis and includes psychological, psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments to give you the best picture of support options. We are currently taking reservations for evaluations.
