The Process

Contact Me

Let's chat! Over the phone, we'll talk about your child's needs and the evaluation process to make sure it's a good fit. We'll also schedule the evaluation appointments, if you're ready.

The Evaluation

There are 3 main parts to an evaluation: the intake, testing, and the results discussion. The intake is usually 1 hour. The duration of testing varies by age and referral concerns. Lastly, the results discussion is 1 hour.

Results

After testing, we'll talk through diagnoses and recommendations. This may happen the same day as testing or it may happen later. The written report will be sent to you at most 2 weeks from the results discussion.

Autism

Whether you've been curious about autism for a while or autism is new to you, I can help. I have years of experience diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder in children 1 to 16 years-old. I've walked with many families in their journey.

IQ / Adaptive

The terms "IQ" and "adaptive functioning" may be new to you, and that's okay! This type of testing is often done so families can access certain services.

Virtual Evals

​During the pandemic, providers across the country began to embrace virtual (also called "telehealth") evaluations for autism. With extensive training and experience, I am a specialist in virtual autism evaluations.

Autism Reevals

I specialize in reevaluations for children and teens diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I recommend a reevaluation every 2 to 3 years. This is because children learn and grow so quickly that their initial evaluation report becomes outdated.
