Testing for Autism Spectrum

Autism (Aspergers, NVLD, PDD) is a complex disorder that has unique and varied presentations. Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by deficits in language development and social interaction, as well as restricted and stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and activity (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). One of the primary problems in autism is executive dysfunction (Dawson et al., 2008), which appears to be present in adolescence and adulthood. Proper assessment and diagnosis can lead to appropriate recommendations and successful outcomes. 

Every person with Autism has different strengths and weaknesses, and may also have depression and anxiety that affects their ability to progress.  If you are looking for an evaluation to define these issues, please contact us.
