Multidisciplinary Diagnostic Assessments – Ages 1 through 8
We provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluation for families who suspect their child may have an autism spectrum disorder. This evaluation includes a psychological assessment, an occupational therapy assessment, a speech and language assessment, and a consultation with a developmental pediatrician.
Children may be referred to the Burrell Autism Center by their parents, doctors, educators or other treating professionals. Once a referral is received, the family will be contacted to set up a phone pre-screening. This information will be used to determine whether a team screening is needed and to recommend other services while waiting for your screening.
If a screening is recommended, the family will be asked to come in and complete an intake packet and to schedule the screening. At the 1-hour screening, the diagnostic team will meet with the parent and child, at which time the necessary diagnostic services are determined.If further evaluation is needed, the team may refer for a complete or partial Multidisciplinary Autism Evaluation. This recommendation is determined by the individual needs of the child. If no further evaluation is needed at this time, the team will refer the child back to the original referral source and/or other services, as needed.
After all evaluations are completed, the family will be contacted to set up a feedback session with the psychologist where they will discuss the child’s diagnosis and the team’s recommendations for treatment.
We accept Medicaid, private insurance and self-pay clients.
