We are pleased to offer families the option of Web-based Evaluation for the Early Identification of Autism Spectrum Disorders (WEEI-ASD)! This service is provided by a Licensed Psychologist with specialized expertise in the assessment of developmental concerns in infants and toddlers. WEEI-ASD evaluations are provided in English and/or Spanish.
Who does the program serve? This program is designed for parents who are interested in a diagnostic assessment for their child (ages 0-3) who may have possible signs or “red flags” of developmental delays and/or of being on the autism spectrum.
What does the evaluation include? The evaluation covers all key areas of early development, including Language, Communication, Social, Play, Behavioral, and Adaptive Skills. It includes assessment of these key domains in order to determine whether a child meets criteria for developmental delays and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Identifying developmental delays or ASD as soon as possible can allow children to receive appropriate early intervention and educational services in order to make maximum progress.
What is the process of the evaluation? WEEI-ASD evaluations are conducted via live video conferencing. This allows us to observe the child in their natural environment, and the quality of interactions between child and caregiver(s). The evaluation is typically conducted in a single morning/afternoon but can be divided into 2 sessions if needed. The evaluation can be conducted in English or Spanish.
What are the fees for WEEI-ASD evaluations? The flat fee for this comprehensive evaluation is $1,850.
If you are unsure as to whether a WEEI-ASD or Multi-Disciplinary Developmental Clinic evaluation is right for your child, please contact us so that we can offer guidance.
