Evaluating Your Child for Autism

Are you concerned about your child’s development? Are you having a hard time getting your child’s attention?  Do you worry that your child is not as social as other children their age? Is your child having difficulty following the routines of preschool or daycare?


If you answered yes to any of these questions, your child may be showing “red flags” for autism.  Consider scheduling an evaluation with one of our experts in the assessment and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Our team will conduct a comprehensive developmental interview, administer leading-edge diagnostic tests, review all other educational, medical, or behavioral health records, and observe your child in different environments to obtain the clearest picture of your child’s development.


Accurate diagnosis is the most important first step.  Please complete this form or Call 1-844-SPIN-CAN to schedule an intake.
