Autism Spectrum Disorder Assessments:

Nexus Psychology is a practice recognized for its clinical expertise in the assessment and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule- Second Edition (ADOS-2) is recognized as a gold-standard tool in assessing and diagnosing ASD. Your specialty assessment may include all of the following tools:

  • ADOS-2
  • Developmental Interview
  • Intellectual Functioning Assessment
  • Adaptive Functioning Assessment (Everyday Life Skills)
  • Observation in a familiar environment with peers

The critical pieces of information gathered through this assessment, as well as information from a physician to rule out other medical explanations, will determine your child’s eligibility for a diagnosis of ASD.
