Review the list below and check all the items that resonate with your child's behavior and development.
Count the items you checked above. If your child meets 5 or more of the criteria above, we encourage you to explore a formal evaluation.
Early diagnosis and intervention are key, and our team is here to answer questions or to schedule an assessment.
Because of the specialized nature of our testing services, we, along with many other Chicagoland providers of neuropsychological testing, are experiencing considerable demand for assessments.
However, if your child is 4 or younger, and has been referred to us for possible autism, we will do our best to schedule you in the next 2 weeks for an intake, testing, and feedback appointment as part of our Autism Testing Clinic. The appointment typically takes about three hours and takes place in one day. We know how critical this testing is as early as possible in a child's development.
For all other testing and assessments, we are currently booking appointments 5-6 months into the future.
Our Neuropsychology team administers the ADOS-2, which is an assessment that observes how a child interacts with their environment. The ADOS-2 is mostly play-based, and probes for social and emotional behaviors, and is recognized as the field's current "gold standard" for diagnosing or excluding autism.
In addition to administering the ADOS-2, our team gains insight about your child from a thorough intake meeting and behavioral feedback from parents and teachers (if applicable). One parent is present during the assessment and may be asked at certain times to participate.
