Our refined diagnostic process guides effective, evidenced-based treatment planning, often including referral to other health professionals. We use interactive, structured play sessions; autism-directed history; and neurodevelopmental testing to determine your child’s diagnosis or if there is a need for more in-depth testing.

Services We Offer

  • We can access the services your child needs.

  • We can advocate at your child’s school for the appropriate care.

  • We can access short-term crisis behavioral support.
