Autism Diagnosis / Autism Testing
Before your child can begin ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy, you must obtain an official autism diagnosis. We offer thorough autism screening, autism testing, and autism diagnosis. If your child is showing signs of autism spectrum disorder, developmental disabilities, or even a lack of verbal or social interaction skills, our autism center can help.
If you’ve been researching how to get an autism diagnosis, you’ve probably found it can take months or even years before you can get an official test and diagnosis of autism. At New Patterns ABA, we are focusing significant resources on autism diagnosis to eliminate or shorten any wait time.
Our streamlined, four-step process for autism testing and screening:
1. Call us for an initial consultation on autism testing. We will listen to your concerns and ask some initial autism screening questions. We will also verify any insurance benefits that can help you and discuss appointment options.
2. At your appointment, our clinical team will meet with you and your child. The tests, including the ADOS-2, the current gold standard in autism assessment, are all play/activity based in a warm, friendly setting. The typical autism screening appointment involves several components and lasts two to four hours.
3. After your autism diagnosis appointment, our medical specialists will review the results of your autism testing session, which usually takes one-to-two weeks.
4. At a second appointment, we will share our findings and any diagnosis with you, including a written report and recommendations on the treatment of autism, if needed.
New Patterns ABA was founded to help children with autism and related disorders. We pay close attention to the comfort level of your loved one during the autism diagnostic process, and we are generous with our time and support in discussing the results.
Teen ABA Therapy
Teens need customized treatment plans when it comes to ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Therapy. Sometimes, autism symptoms are not recognized early on but become more visible once children enter puberty.
Whether you’ve just received a late diagnosis, you’re dealing with changes in your IEP (Individualized Education Program) or feel your teen needs help with new skills now that they’re older, New Patterns ABA can provide the special attention that teens with autism need. It helps to have an objective third-party address behaviors so that family members don’t have to be “the bad guy.” And New Patterns ABA resources and flexible treatment programs mean there’s no long waiting list for your teenager to begin therapy.
Child ABA Therapy (Ages 2-12)
Whether you’ve just received an autism diagnosis for your toddler, or you have a school-aged child on the spectrum, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, including its components such as discrete trial training, is the most effective, evidence-based treatment. ABA therapy is endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General’s office, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, among other organizations and agencies.
Early intervention using ABA therapy yields the best results for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. And New Patterns ABA’s resources and flexible ABA programs mean there’s no long waiting list for your child to begin therapy.
Adult ABA Therapy
ABA therapy is typically sought for early interventions with young children. But older children and adults with autism spectrum disorder can benefit from ABA Therapy as well, and treatment options for them are often scarce. Government assistance typically ends at age 22.
Our Adult ABA Therapy Treatment Program helps people on the spectrum improve social and daily living skills while preparing them for independent living or post-academic life. We can give clients confidence through learning specific skills like dining out, shopping or using transportation.
New Patterns ABA accepts most major insurance plans.
