What happens during an assessment ?

Most insurance companies require that the patient have a current diagnosis of autism prior to the initial assessment. The assessment allows the clinician to collect a "baseline" of skills and supported needed for your child. It allows the clinician to identify areas of strengths and needs. Depending on the type of service and assessment required, a clinician may visit your home to complete an intake interview. The assessor may ask questions about the family's current schedule, the learners strengths, challenges, and goals. The assessor will also complete a formal assessment with the learner. This may often involve observation of the learner's interactions with others, "testing" the learner's skills, and speaking directly with the learner about their experiences. With this information, the clinician will work with the family and the learner to determine goals for the treatment plan.

It's important to note that note every assessment is completed in person. Some assessments can be completed online.
