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:
- 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.
