Diagnostic Evaluations

When a parent or caregiver wonders if a loved one qualifies for a mental health diagnosis, we can provide the answer

Accurate diagnosis can provide answers and open doors to a range of treatment options

Our clinical diagnostic evaluation is a one-day assessment that can confirm whether an individual meets criteria for an autism spectrum disorder or other mental health or behavioral diagnosis

These evaluations provide diagnostic clarification and recommendations for appropriate treatment and intervention services.

We participate with a range of insurance companies for these evaluations, the results of which can also be shared with insurance providers to access covered treatments.

Clinical diagnostic evaluations are recommended for:

  • Parents, individuals, or healthcare providers seeking an initial diagnosis or clarification of multiple potential diagnoses in order to access appropriate therapeutic services
  • Providing guidance for therapeutic intervention purposes, particularly when there is uncertainty as to which treatment options will be most effective

We complete diagnostic evaluations for children and adults, sharing straightforward answers to diagnostic questions along with recommendations for accessing treatment

  • Clinical diagnostic interviews are completed with the individual and/or family members, and medical and educational records are reviewed
