Types of Pediatric Diagnostic Evaluations for Autism

We diagnose autism by observing your child’s behavior and the information you provide about their development. These evaluations typically take place with professionals from different disciplines, including psychology, speech-language pathology, psychiatry and neurology. Testing for autism may include:

  • Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS): Our specialists use this detailed testing tool to diagnose autism spectrum disorders. Designed for children of all ages, we use this test to better understand a child’s language and social skills and understand their development. The ADOS is based on evaluating a child’s response and interactions to a series of play-based social situations. This might include watching a younger child’s behavior during activities with blocks or at snack time or talking about going to school with an older child who has speaking ability.
