Autism diagnostic assessments
Many families and children wait months or more to obtain an autism from a qualified professional. Children affected by autism respond best to treatment when services start at an early age. To better serve families, children, and the community, Butterfly Effects is offering free comprehensive autism assessments from a doctoral level licensed psychologist. If your child is showing signs of autism (delays in communication, delays social interactions, and behavioral problems) the Butterfly Effects’ autism assessment service can help.
A formal autism diagnosis is required by health insurance providers before treatment is authorized. Most families seek Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy for their children following an autism diagnosis. ABA therapy can be provided in the child’s home or ABA center. ABA therapy involves one-to-one treatment with a therapist, includes the families, and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
