This type of evaluation aims at the detection of an Autism Spectrum Disorder, either early detection or later in life. The process entails a thorough interview to obtain background information from early childhood, completion of questionnaires by parent(s) and/or teacher(s), and direct testing. Typically, the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) is administered. Depending on the individual’s age a cognitive test is also usually administered. We may also request to see home videos of your child when they were young in order to obtain information about their development and social interaction during early childhood.
