Autism Diagnostic Evaluation
Little Friends Center for Autism offers one of the most comprehensive diagnostic evaluations for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the country. We use the gold standard for testing that includes the Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI), Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), cognitive testing, adaptive testing, and a speech evaluation. We provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for both home and school. Our testing not only looks for autism, but defines how each child learns so we can make recommendations that make a difference in that child’s life. Every evaluation is performed by a psychologist and a speech therapist that specializes in ASD so that each family leaves with hope and ways to move forward with their child. Given that time is critical, we see children as young as 18 months and continue to work with children as they grow to help refine treatment goals and ensure interventions provided are effective.
