The Autism Diagnostic Clinic provides comprehensive evaluation services to children ages 18 months to 8 years with symptoms that may indicate the presence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Our goal is to diagnose early, provide the most comprehensive assessment and treatment plan possible, and provide families with the support to best take care of their child. Families will leave the clinic with a diagnosis and initial treatment guidelines that will help their child meet his or her maximum potential. We will also partner with your primary care physician to coordinate the greatest possible care.

The team will use a variety of assessments to determine the needs of your child. Areas that may be assessed include:

  • Sensory processing
  • Expressive and receptive communication
  • Social communication
  • Play skills 
  • Behavior
  • Language
  • Social development
