Full diagnostic autism evaluation – $800, paid up front, or split into 3 equal payments of $266.66 (payments due before each step). Diagnosis requires completion of all 3 steps.
Step 1 – Interview Session
This is an in-depth, live virtual interview to gather background information. Questionnaires for family members, teachers, etc as appropriate are included. This step uses the Monteiro Interview Guidelines for Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum, Second Edition (MIGDAS™-2).
Step 2 – Testing Session
This step includes the most recent version of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule or the ADOS™-2 and other assessments as needed (typically an in-person session for children, with exceptions on a case-by-case basis; may be a virtual session for teens or adults). Sometimes a client needs this testing to be broken up into 2 or more sessions (to reduce overwhelm, demand, etc). Your evaluator will discuss this with you as needed. Needing more sessions will not change the evaluation cost.
Step 3 – Review Session
This step is used to discuss evaluation results, areas of strength and challenge, and individualized recommendations. You will have the opportunity to ask questions at any point in the process. We will provide you with a formal evaluation report and a list of recommended resources and/or services, tailored to your individual needs.
