The CDC reported (2018) that approximately 1 in 59 children met criteria for a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. However, many believe these numbers to be an underestimate – particularly with young girls, who are often dismissed as simply shy or odd.
Autism is typically identified early in life, around elementary school age. However, as public awareness about autism has increased, many teens and adults have begun to recognize Autistic traits in themselves. This has led to an upsurge of referrals for people seeking help for Autism.
If you have noticed signs of Autism, if your child is struggling, or if you just want answers, our Autism Assessments at Heredia Therapy Group can can help.
Early detection and support can make all the difference for children diagnosed with autism.
Kids diagnosed with autism can learn important social skills, self-regulation tools, and self-confidence; however, an accurate diagnosis is the first step to success. For example, children can experience other difficulties which may appear similar to autism (e.g., learning disorder, intellectual disability, anxiety), yet the treatment may look different for those conditions.
In addition to the gold standard assessment tools used to identify signs and symptoms of autism, we utilize other testing measures to provide an in-depth look at your child’s functioning.
In total, assessments tend to take approximately a few weeks, as we deeply value testing accuracy and thoroughness. If you have questions about our Autism Assessments or would like to sign up today, send us a message! We’d love to hear from you.
Once we know what might be going on and what the diagnosis might include, we offer our recommendations and practical solutions.
