- Do you think your child may have Autism?
- Does your child have difficulty in social situations?
- Did your child have delayed language development?
- Does your child have odd or repetitive behaviors?
- Does your child have sensitivities to lights, noises, or textures?
- Has your child’s school or pediatrician recommended that your child be tested for Autism?
You may find that your child’s problems with language and development can interfere with their friendships and day to day functioning at home.
You may find that your child has difficulty fitting in with others, has difficulty taking others’ perspective, and has a literal understanding of everyday language.
Many other childhood behaviors, emotional disorders, neurological disorders, or learning disorders can look very similar. We have found that many parents and teachers have difficulty accurately determining exactly what is going on when a child exhibits these problems. We can provide a thorough Autism evaluation to help you identify how best to help your child. Our psychologists know exactly which assessments are important so that you can feel confident that your child is accurately diagnosed.
About 2% of children will meet criteria for Autism. Every child with Autism is unique. Moderate to severe Autism symptoms may be noticeable by age 2 or 3, but children with high-functioning Autism may not be identified until much later in life. Their problems may show up in their social interactions, odd behaviors, emotional meltdowns, sensory problems, and other ways. We will help you get to the root of the problem so your child can get the right treatment!
