Initial Evaluations for Autism

An initial evaluation for autism can feel like an overwhelming process for families. NTX Psych Services will guide you smoothly through this crucial journey in your family's life.

The evaluation will include a caregiver interview, direct testing with your child including an ADOS-2 and an extensive written report to enable your family to access necessary services. 

Provided from 18 months - adolescence

Re-Evaluations for ASD

Most insurance companies require a new evaluation to determine the level of autism symptoms every 3 years.

Updated background information, a new ADOS-2 assessment, and client observations will occur.

This updated report can be shared with your child's current providers, school, and primary care doctor

to ensure continuity of care. 

Families should consider starting the re-evaluation process

at least 2-3 months before their child's old evaluation expires

to ensure that no gaps in services or care occur.

Specific Learning Disability Evaluations in Reading and Writing

Educational evaluations for specific concerns in the areas of reading and writing can help you determine what accommodations or modifications your child may require to perform at the highest level in the academic setting. 

Areas of assessment for a specific learning disability may include

  • Achievement Testing

  • Social-Emotional Questionnaires

  • Cognitive Functioning/IQ Testing

  • Adaptive Functioning Assessments

  • Interviews with Caregivers and Teachers

  • Review of Academic Work Samples

  • Complete Medical, Developmental, and Diagnostic History

While a specific learning disability evaluation may lead to a formal diagnosis, the goal of the evaluation will be to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses and to connect your family to the resources needed to help your child achieve success in the classroom and beyond.
