Autism Treatment


If you and/or your child exhibit any combination of the above, it is possible that Autism Spectrum Disorder may be present.  If unaddressed, these symptoms can negatively affect their social life and academic performance. 

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects how people interact with others, communicate, learn, and behave. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is described as a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life.

Why Is Testing Necessary For Diagnosing Autism?

Regardless of the severity of symptoms, testing is typically required to confirm a diagnosis of autism and to create an individualized treatment plan.

Among its many benefits, appropriate testing can qualify children for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy.  It can also facilitate the creation of a truly integrated approach that is tailored to each individual’s unique needs.

At WPA, we are autism testing specialists who use the most sophisticated assessments, such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), to help our clients find the answers and treatment they need.  Our primary goal is to clarify a diagnosis and create a cohesive treatment plan that helps you and/or your child thrive.

An accurate and thorough diagnosis is essential for children, teens, and adults on the Spectrum to receive proper accommodations. Not only can a diagnosis pave the way for individualized educational interventions and adequate support, but ADOS testing is specifically required to receive ABA, which is one of the most effective treatment methods for children. 

Our clinicians are passionate about providing testing and ongoing support to clients with autism and their families. Through our autism assessment process, you or your child can receive proper referrals, interventions (including therapy, neurofeedback, and/or medication management), and access additional resources that will allow you to feel more supported and functional in your everyday life.

Common Questions About Autism Testing…

How much will the evaluation cost?

We work with both private pay and insurance clients.

How quickly can my child/I be seen for an evaluation?

We can typically accommodate most evaluations within weeks. 

What if testing does not determine a diagnosis of autism?

Our autism assessments are extremely thorough, and we always screen for other issues in the process. If it’s determined that there is no diagnosis of ASD present, we will make other testing recommendations based on your or your child’s unique symptoms.
