The ADOS is a standardized diagnostic tool which is considered the gold standard for Autism Assessments. The assessment is completed by a team that consists of an Occupational Therapist, Psychologist and Speech and Language Pathologist and takes approximately one hour of direct interaction with the child. Depending upon the age of the child the parent may or may not attend the assessment. There are different assessment modules for different ages and/or speech and language abilities. Currently we are offering the ADOS assessment module on a case by case basis. Please submit the forms below along with any recent Psychology, Speech & Language Pathology or Occupational Therapy assessments. We will review your paperwork and be in touch. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the office.
