Evaluations and Assessments

 We provide a wide variety of developmental skills tests, social skills and behavior scales. Results and reports can be informative and very helpful in seeking medical/mental health professionals to obtain the most appropriate and effective care. These results may shed light on potential developmental delays, autism spectrum disorder, etc.

Some evaluations offered include, but are not limited to:

  • ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) 

    Please note that we do not provide diagnoses, however, results of this assessment are commonly shared with, or given to, the client's physician or psychologist in order for them to make a diagnosis, as appropriate.

  • VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior-Milestone Assessment Placement Program) for developmental ages birth to 48 months
  • SRS-2 (Social Responsiveness Scale) Determines social impairments or differences in autistic individuals ages 2-18 yrs old
  • ABAS-3 (Adaptive Behavior Assessment System)  Assessment for daily living identifying intellectual and/or learning disabilities, neuropsychological disorders, and sensory or physical impairments ages birth to 89 yrs old
  • CARS (Childhood Autism Rating Scale)  Helps distinguish developmentally disabled children who are not autistic, based on direct behavior observation.
  • SIB-R (Scales of Independent Behavior) Standardized adaptive skills and behavior barriers, birth to 90 yrs

Please call for more information on additional testing in development and behavior


ABA Therapy: 1:1/Individual sessions

ABA therapy sessions are individual sessions that may occur in the home, clinic, and/or community setting, with a Behavior Therapist and the supervising Licensed Behavior Analyst. Sessions provide a positive learning experience for clients to acquire new skills, while it appears and feels like leisure or playtime. This encourages natural responses and helps development of skills using the client’s interests. (Please note: We have a waitlist for ABA therapy, however, stand-alone assessments and enrollment in social groups/clubs are more likley to have earlier openings.)


Social Skills: Individual and Group settings

Our clients may learn new skills in small groups with same aged peers to include:

basic communication and language, social awareness, school readiness behaviors and toleration and navigation through social barriers, which can naturally occur in groups and among friends.


PEERS Curriculum (with PEERS Certified Provider)Coming soon!

"The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is world-renowned for providing evidence-based social skills programs to preschoolers, adolescents, and young adults who are interested in developing and maintaining close friendships and/or romantic relationships"


Parent/caregiver Guidance and Support

Our licensed clinicians provide education and training during therapy to model individualized, effective behavior change strategies. By providing caregiver support, we can increase the family members' comfort level and ability to also teach skills, as well as manage interfering behaviors with success. During parent/caregiver training, we review progress on individual goals and discuss making any beneficial modifications to the treatment plan.
