Comprehensive Diagnostic Evalution

Comprehensive Diagnostic Evalution

KGH Autism Services is pleased to offer comprehensive diagnostic and psychological evaluation services to support the early identification of autism.

When it comes to your child’s growth and development, you are the expert. If you have concerns, it’s essential to seek answers and support.

Seasoned 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) as well as other common co-occuring conditions including ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Having an accurate diagnosis is key to connecting individuals to the appropriate supports and services.

What is included in a comprehensive evaluation? 

  • Initial developmental interview with the parent or caregiver, and the individual as appropriate 
  • Review of existing medical, social, academic, and developmental records 
  • Developmental or cognitive testing as indicated to assess for learning differences 
  • Standardized behavioral observation using evidence-based assessment tools such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) 
  • Collection of parent/caregiver and teacher adaptive and behavioral rating scales 
  • Face to face feedback and discussion of evaluation results and recommendations 
  • Written report of evaluation results and findings 

At KGH, we understand the significance of completing evaluations in a timely manner. While the length of the process may vary depending on the complexity of the presenting concerns and the age of the child, our team works diligently to provide answers as quickly as possible. We know that uncertainty can be overwhelming, so we make it our priority to ensure that our evaluations are completed with the utmost attention to detail.
