Autism Diagnostic Testing

Diagnosing autism early and accurately is essential to ensure children receive access to life-changing therapies and support at the most critical age. Likewise, in adolescents and adults, an accurate diagnosis can mean more support, greater understanding of oneself, and valuable insight to inform therapeutic interventions. 

Many individuals and families currently face challenges in obtaining a timely evaluation. Waiting months to a year for an initial appointment, long wait lists, and insurance red tape all result in a significant delay in diagnosis. However, with our diagnostic service, you can receive the in-person evaluation and results on the same day. 

MedPsych Autism Diagnostic Evaluation includes: 

  • Initial online questionnaire packet to complete before the evaluation 

  • An in-person session (2.5-3 hours total) which includes: 

  • Clinical interview with the child and parent/caregiver(s) / adult

  • Brief physical exam (for children)

  • Discussion with the clinician of findings and recommendations for next steps 

  • Comprehensive report of the evaluation results 

 

Evaluation Eligibility: 

  • Children 2.5 years old and up, and Adults 18+, who are suspected to have autism 

  • Few exclusions apply. An initial screening is performed by phone.

 

What will be diagnosed? 

  • Our diagnostic process will evaluate for the presence or absence of Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

  • We take great care to elicit symptoms that are less obvious, or the individual is masking. 

  • If the individual does not meet the full criteria for autism, but the diagnosis is still in question, you may be provided with a referral for further testing or evaluation. 

  • This specific evaluation does not include testing for ADHD, nor are psychiatric disorders ruled in or out. However, if the evaluator observes signs of other disorders, this will be discussed with you. 

  • Note: This evaluation is not intended for obtaining state disability services. If such an evaluation is needed, we can facilitate a referral to an evaluator.
