 Autism Evaluation

Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluations:

A comprehensive diagnostic evaluation helps to determine whether a child meets the criteria for a medical diagnosis of autism. In addition, the evaluation process helps to identify specific strengths and weaknesses that lead to recommendations matched to particular needs.

How to make a referral:

For initial evaluations of children ages 1.5 – 5 years old, Telshor Behavioral requires a referral from a licensed healthcare provider (i.e., pediatrician, CNP, PCP, psychologist, speech-language pathologist, EI provider) currently treating the child and whose scope of practice allows them to perform an autism screening or document concerns that warrant further evaluation. 


For re-evaluations of children of any age currently receiving ABA services and needing an updated assessment and Integrated Service Plan (ISP), a BCBA or ABA provider should complete the referral form. 


Healthcare providers, please include any relevant previous screenings, evaluations, CMEs, or IFSPs. 


ABA providers, please include the child’s current ABA treatment plan and initial evaluation report documenting the diagnosis of ASD. 


Evaluation Process:

Once a completed provider referral form is received, parents will receive a link to our intake portal within seven to ten business days. 


The evaluation will be scheduled once all intake forms and rating scales are completed. The evaluation typically consists of three appointments that include:


  1. Parent Interview (2 to 2.5 hours)

  2. Direct Testing with the child (1.5 to 2 hours)

  3. Feedback Session with Parent (1 hour)


In addition, obtaining rating scales or speaking with other professionals familiar with your child is often helpful. This may include therapists, physicians, counselors, teachers, and speech or occupational therapists. 


A written report will be generated, and a copy will be provided to you during the feedback session.
