Specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disabilities, and Behavior Disorders

Our Services

An accurate diagnosis can result in improved outcomes for children, in educational, home,  and social environments. Your child may be exhibiting symptoms of Autism, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disability, and/or Emotional/Behavioral concerns that are impacting their ability to succeed.   Our goal is to offer every patient an accurate diagnosis and helpful interventions in a professional, caring, and supportive enviornment.  You can usually schedule an appointment within the same month for an Autism Evaluation by contacting our Intake Coordinator at 484-904-7499.
Autism Spectrum Evaluations

 The evaluation process includes a parent interview to obtain background information from early childhood, completion of questionnaires by parent(s) and/or teacher(s), and direct testing.  Typically, the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) is administered.  Depending on the individual’s age a developmental battery and/or cognitive test is also usually administered.  We may also request to complete a school observation of your child to observe social interactions in a typical school and/or day care setting.  
Independent Educational Evaluations

Federal law defines an IEE as “an evaluation conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the public agency responsible for the education of the child in question.”  An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) can be requested in the event that you believe the results of the Educational Assessment for Special Education Services you requested were not appropriate (e.g. incorrect or incomplete). These evaluation can include neuropsychological testing, autism evaluations, and other domains depending on parental concerns and the referral question.
    
Psychoeducational Evaluations

The purpose of a psychoeducational evaluation is to uncover the student’s profile of abilities and determine how it affects her/his learning. A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation includes the collection of background information from parents and teachers and a classroom observation if warranted.  A battery of instruments are used for these evaluations and the specific ones used will depend on many factors, including the age of the individual, the purpose of the evaluation, and any suspected areas of concern.  Following the evaluation a comprehensive report is developed and a feedback session is held with the family to review results and recoomendations.
