Comprehensive Evaluation for Diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder

If you suspect that your child has an autism spectrum disorder, or your child’s pediatrician or teacher has raised concerns, you need answers. Our program utilizes an autism patient navigator model to support your entire family through the process.

If your child receives an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis, our team will work with your family to help you understand what to expect for your child’s future and establish a care plan.

If it’s determined that your child’s behaviors and development fall on the normal spectrum of child development, we can work with you to identify tools and strategies for handling the behaviors and issues that concern you.
