Autism Assessment

Autism assessment plays an important role in diagnosing and assisting children and adults with autism. An assessment will provide you with a comprehensive report (including evidence-based recommendations), a feedback session that deconstructs the assessment report in an easy to understand way, and ongoing guidance and support with your next steps.

  • Difficulty developing and maintaining close friends
  • Delayed expressed speech or loss of language skills
  • Lack of eye contact

  • And more…
