The Burrell Autism Center provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluation for individuals who may have an autism spectrum disorder. Using a variety of formal and informal evaluation and assessment measures, the team identifies specific neuro-developmental cognitive processes that are affecting a child???s ability to function within his/her daily routine.
The Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Evaluation includes:
- Psychological Evaluation
- Medical Evaluation by the Developmental Pediatrician
- Occupational Therapy Evaluation
- Speech Language Evaluation
After the comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluation is completed, the Autism Center Diagnostic Team discusses the evaluations and determines the diagnosis for the child. The team then makes recommendations for treatment. Based on the Diagnostic Team???s recommendations, the Psychologist completes a Multidisciplinary Diagnostic Summary.
Individual evaluations, such as Occupational Therapy or Speech Language Therapy are also available for children who have an established ASD diagnosis. Appropriate avenues for those specific evaluations are determined during the multi-disciplinary screening.
