Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)-Focused Evaluations

We recommend comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children where autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is questioned. However, for adults, we sometimes can offer a targeted ASD specific evaluation versus a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation that also evaluates ASD. This more targeted evaluation is appropriate for an adult who has already undergone neuropsychological or psychological evaluation where various conditions were ruled out or identified, but autism may not have been fully or adequately addressed. An ASD focused process also may be appropriate for an adult who has no apparent rule-out diagnoses to be explored. For example, there are no concerns about ADHD or OCD. The focused ASD evaluation includes a thorough clinical interview and developmental history as well as focused testing related to cognitive, social-emotional, and behavioral functioning.
