Autism

What is Autism?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder associated with significant challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviors. Nobody knows your child better than you do. So when you have concerns about your child’s growth and development, it’s important to look for answers and support.

Early
Intervention
for Autism

Research shows early intervention can change the developmental trajectory and have major long-term positive effects on symptoms and later skills. Early intervention not only gives children the best start, but also the best chance of developing to their full potential.

About the Autism Screener

The M-CHAT screener (Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers) consists of 20 yes or no questions that can help determine if a professional should evaluate your child. This simple online autism screening tool takes only a few minutes and is available here for free. The tool is designed to be used for screening toddlers between 16 and 30 months of age.

After you submit your answers, our developmental specialist will reach out to you to share your child’s results, answer your questions, and help you get started with any services and support you may need.

It is simple to get started. No doctor’s referral or medical diagnosis needed.

OR Contact KGH if you are ready to schedule a comprehensive evaluation for your child.
