Colorado Springs Neuropsychological Testing for Autism
Does your infant or toddler avoid eye contact? Are you wondering why they don’t show interest, play, or respond to their name? Would they rather be left alone than be held? Has your doctor expressed concerns about a developmental delay? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, your child may be showing early signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The professionals at Central Focus Psychological Group in Colorado Springs can evaluate your child for ASD and assist treatment.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Signs
Children and young adults with autism spectrum disorder routinely have difficulty in social situations due to communication difficulties. These can be verbal or non-verbal and interfere with relationships with family or their peers. They may also interact with their environment or learn differently than other children. Children as young as 12 months of age can be screened and evaluated. Parents whose children are diagnosed early gain access to supportive services and treatment options.
What Do Autism Tests Involve?
There isn’t a blood test or other medical examination that is used to make a diagnosis of autism. Our autism spectrum disorder testing is carefully completed by qualified professionals who observe a child’s behavior and watch for certain developmental milestones. You may be asked to complete a questionnaire about your child’s health and behavioral history. This assessment also provides a snapshot of your child’s baseline behaviors that can be compared to future behaviors to evaluate the treatment progress.
