Autism Spectrum +

Autism assessments include cognition, behavior, social communication, social emotional and adaptive functioning. Evaluations assessing for Autism Spectrum Disorder include an comprehensive caregiver clinical interview, Autism specific diagnostic assessment, intellectual abilities assessment (both verbal and non verbal), and an evaluation of adaptive functioning (communication, daily living, community involvement, and motor skills). Ages start at 2 years 8 months to 23 years.  We specialize in PDA and understand how ASD presents differently among boys and girls.

Educational Evaluations (learning disabilities)

Academic and Psycho-educational assessments include an assessment of your child's age-level performance on academic areas to include reading, writing, and math. Findings can assist to provide support for Special Education Services (IEP's).
Needing a second opinion after a school district IEP assessment? If so, an Independent Education Evaluation (IEE) may be beneficial. We have extensive experience working with families to review IEP assessments and provide IEE's as a second opinion for all local school districts.

now we have direction

Dr. Griffiths and her team helped me better understand PDA and how this was affecting my son at school.  We know have all the right supports in place and I feel more confident as a parent. 

helped getting services

We were able to use the assessment from AZ Peds Center to get DDD services in our home and my daughter is making progress in the areas we were concerned about. 

helped at school meeting

I was so grateful to have Mr. Albaugh attend the first IEP meeting with me.  He was able to share the assessment with the team and help create goals.

I felt really welcome

My daughter has a lot of energy and Dr. Ford was so patient and kind to her.  It really helped me feel at ease knowing they could keep up with her active energy.

What makes us different

We Do Details

Every assessment includes an understanding of your child's strengths and areas of growth.  We collaborate with teachers, pediatricians, therapists, family members, and medication providers. 

We're Personal

Our office is designed to look  and feel like your living room.  Your child will feel at home and relaxed for the assessment.  We don't do stuffy or big fancy words that real people don't understand.  Our reports are easy to understand.  

We're Experienced

We went to school for a long time to earn those little letters after our names. We also worked in a variety of settings with different kids and families (so nothing really shocks us).  Our team also continues to attend trainings, obtain certifications, and keep up to date with recent research and mental heath concerns.
