Autism - Assessment of Skills


Autism - Assessment of Skills

Based on information obtained from parents, teachers, families, previous evaluations, service providers and direct interactions with the child, the C.A.R.D.S. team (Collaborative Autism and Related Disorders Services)provides a total assessment of skills in the areas of:

  • Cognition
  • Speech-language
  • Occupational therapy
  • Sensory integration

The assessment identifies the child's personal and environmental challenges and strengths.  It provides priority goals and objectives for immediate and consistent treatment even when using multiple care providers and settings.

The team works closely with parents, school personnel and other service providers.  Our autism service coordinator offers follow-up support as therapy services are coordinated with home, school and other agencies.
