Diagnosis & Assessment

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is marked by impairments in communication and social skills. More severe forms of ASD can also include intellectual or language impairments, and co-occurring diagnoses of ADHD, anxiety, or poor behavioral control. ASD is typically diagnosed during the first three years of life. However, because the symptoms range on a continuum of impairment level, some children and adults go years without ever receiving an explanation for why they behave the way they do.

Importantly, ASD is just one type of neurodevelopmental disorder. Other disorders that demonstrate similar symptoms as ASD include: Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder, Intellectual Disability, Non-Verbal Learning Disorder, and Motor Disorders. A thorough evaluation is the most effective way of accurately diagnosing and treating.

 

Evaluations to diagnose Autism and other developmental disorders typically include:

  • ADOS-2, the gold standard for assessing Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • In-depth interviews with parents
  • Standardized assessment measures for cognitive abilities, communication and language
  • Evaluation of adaptive skills
  • Assessment of social-emotional functioning
  • Cognitive functioning
  • Attention and mental control
  • Processing speed
  • Executive functioning
  • Language abilities
  • Adaptive functioning
  • Verbal learning and memory
  • Nonverbal learning and memory
  • Visual perception
  • Behavioral and emotional functioning
  • Social skills and social cognition
  • Academic achievement

Throughout the evaluation the child will be observed at play and then engaged in activities which will provide insight into the child’s ability to interact, social, and communicate. In addition, a neurological and physical examination will be completed along with standardized developmental assessments that will provide developmental and behavioral baselines.

Evaluations can identify autism spectrum disorders, developmental, and neurocognitive delay, impulse control problems, difficulties with attention, emotional, and behavioral concerns, learning disabilities, memory, and concentration issues, and giftedness.
