Diagnostic Testing Services

Benefit from our Two Key Diagnostic Testing Tools

At Paragon Autism Services, our Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) is trained to use two important tools for autism diagnosis: the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R).

The ADOS-2 is an observational assessment that helps diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Our LPC observes the individual’s social communication skills, interactions, play behaviors, and repetitive behaviors. This assessment provides valuable insights into their strengths and challenges related to autism.

The ADI-R is a detailed interview conducted with a parent or caregiver who knows the individual well. It helps gather information about their developmental history and daily behaviors. The interview has 93 questions and covers different aspects of their behavior. It takes about 2 to 2.5 hours to complete and does not involve the individual being assessed.

Accurate Diagnoses, Effective Treatment Plans

By using the ADOS-2 and ADI-R, our LPC can make accurate diagnoses, leading to effective treatment. These assessments are based on research and provide a better understanding of autism for individuals and their families.

Our LPC’s expertise in using these assessments allows us to provide thorough evaluations and personalized treatment plans for individuals with autism. We ensure they receive the best care and support on their journey.
