Autism Testing for your Child



When your child is experiencing differences in their learning or social interactions, it’s hard to know how to help them. They may engage in repetitive behaviors, have trouble with eye contact, or be easily overwhelmed. You can sometimes wrestle with thoughts like:

  • Is this just a “phase”?
  • Is it something I’ve done wrong?
  • If I reach out for help, what in my child’s life will change?

These thoughts can be paralyzing. It’s hard to understand your child’s behavior, and you may wonder if your child could be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

More than anything, you want a clear way to help your child succeed.

Common signs of autism spectrum disorder

About 4 in 100 boys and 1 in 100 girls has autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This experience is characterized by some common characteristics that have to do with the child’s social tendencies and emotional regulation. We’ve listed here some common early signs of children who have ASD.

Each child’s brain is unique… so is the right solution.

ASD is as complex as your child, and needs tailored solutions to make an impact on your child’s life. Our approach involves more than giving your child a diagnosis: you will have a clear plan for how to help your child succeed.

Our 3-Step Autism Testing Process:

We handle the testing so you have clear answers about your child’s unique development and needs. We help people just like you get ASD testing so they can achieve their goals. We have a 3 step testing process. Our standard autism assessment price is on the lower end of the market rate, ranging from $4500-$5500. You’ll receive a planning meeting, ASD assessment session, a custom report, and coaching session.

Autism testing will give you all the tools you need to help your child succeed. You’ll have accommodations and recommendations tailored to your child’s needs.

1. Planning Meeting

Create clear goals for testing. We’ll ask you questions about your child’s development and goals. Then, they will custom-fit an assessment plan.

2. Autism Testing

We’ll administer appropriate assessments to gauge your child’s development, challenges, and strengths. Assessments may include the ADOS-2 (a widely accepted and validated autism assessment), as well as other measures depending on your concerns.

3. Planning and Advocacy

You’ll get a report with recommendations for support, accommodations, and/or behavioral therapies. Your clinician will help you integrate these changes in your life. With an accurate diagnosis and recommendations, we can create a plan to advocate for your child’s academic and social needs.

We offer the gold-standard in autism testing: the ADOS-2

ADOS-2 provides clear feedback

The ADOS-2 is considered the primary tool for indicating a valid autism diagnosis. Extensively tested and validated, the ADOS-2 involves direct observation of your child’s social and emotional behaviors. The ADOS-2 is known for being sensitive to diagnosing autism, meaning it correctly identifies positive cases of autism very well.

The ADOS-2, by itself, does not provide a diagnosis. A diagnosis is given by a licensed clinician who is able to use the results of the ADOS-2 assessment, other relevant assessments, and clinical judgement to assess your child.

ADOS-2 provides needed accommodations

With an accurate diagnosis and report, we’re able to give you and your family recommendations and accommodations that will make a tangible difference in your child’s life. Sometimes negotiating with school districts can be challenging, but a clear and accurate autism report, with specific recommendations, can help your family have the advocacy you need for appropriate accommodations.  Accommodations can include the following, depending on your child’s diagnosis and specific needs:

  • Social Skills Training
  • Modified Assignments
  • Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  • Sensory appropriate equipment
  • Visual/written classroom schedules
  • Clearly ordered routines
  • Quiet space
  • Peer Mentors

This is only a partial list of what may be most appropriate for your child’s accommodations for an autism diagnosis.
