Our team is highly trained to conduct specialized autism assessments, typically spanning two sessions. In the initial session, assessments are administered, followed by a comprehensive report shared with you during the second session. These evaluations offer provisional diagnoses, paving the way for access to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services. It’s important to note that for a medical diagnosis, individuals should share their assessment report with their medical provider(s), who may confirm the diagnosis or refer them to a specialized professional like a Developmental Pediatrician or Psychiatrist.
