Understanding Our Testing Procedures

The entire assessment is conducted over four sessions, with each session varying in length. Three sessions will require the client and/or parent or caregiver to be present. Report writing is a billable service. Although you and/or your child will not be present for the report writing (session 3), the insurance requires our providers to charge the co-pay or deductible amount.  


The psychologist will provide you with a clinical interview to better understand the uniqueness of your child or loved one using the ADOS-II (see information below). (Co-pay and/or deductible will be charged.)


The psychologist will administer the assessments with the participant; parents, guardians, and/or family members may observe if agreed upon by all parties. (Co-pay and/or deductible will be charged.)


Session 3: The psychologist interprets results of each test and completes the final report. You and/or your child are not present during this session. (co-pay and/or deductible will be charged.) 

Session 4: The psychologists will then share the results of the assessment with you, answering any questions/concerns you may have. At this time, she will provide you with a full report and diagnostic evaluation summary, as well as recommendations based on the results. (co-pay and/or deductible will be charged.)
