Comprehensive Diagnostic Evalution

KGH Autism Services is pleased to offer comprehensive diagnostic and psychological evaluation services to support the early identification of autism. Licensed psychologists with expertise in the evaluation of autism in children and adolescents conduct our evaluations to accurately diagnose or rule-out autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
