If Austim Spectrum Disorder is a possible
diagnosis for your child, we do a full
evaluation and often administer a full
battery of tests before making a diagnosis
or initiating treatment. Autism Spectrum
Disorder is a neurological disorder present
from early childhood that affects many
areas of a child's life, particularly social
functioning. Behaviors associated with
Austism Spectrum Disorder range from
mild symptoms at one end of the spectrum
such as poor social skills, difficulties with nonverbal communication and clumsiness to more severe symptoms at the other end such as developmental delays and severe impairment in social and daily functioning.
