Lighthouse Autism Center - Diagnostic Services

Diagnostic Services

Lighthouse Autism Center now offers autism evaluations at every Lighthouse location.
If your child has missed critical developmental milestones or is showing signs of autism, contact Lighthouse Autism Center to help. Our autism evaluation team will work with you to collect the necessary paperwork to complete the evaluation and then schedule your child’s autism evaluation.

At Lighthouse Autism Center, we pride ourselves in a collaborative, clinical approach to assist you through the diagnostic process. Our team includes a licensed clinical psychologist, licensed clinical social workers and mental health counselors, as well as BCBAs.

To begin the process, you will attend a virtual parent interview with our psychologist or other qualified licensed professional, followed by an in-person evaluation. During the evaluation, caregiver and child with meet with a qualified technician, which may include a BCBA or other licensed clinical professional for approximately one hour in which the clinician will administer an assessment, including either the Childhood Autism Rating Scale, Second Edition (CARS 2), Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2), or other standardized assessment for evaluating autism in children. Our clinician will observe and interact with the child in several play activities.

Following the appointment, our licensed psychologist will reach out to you to review their diagnostic findings including any diagnoses provided as well as recommendations for next steps.

I couldn’t believe the growth we saw in our son. Things we didn’t think he would be able to do, were taught and mastered quickly.

My son loved his time at Lighthouse! All the therapists were super attentive and helpful and I couldn’t have asked for a better environment for my son to grow and learn. I was satisfied with his progress he made there and he still misses all his therapists!!
