Autism Assessment in Kansas City

Considering an Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluation or autism assessment?

Seeking an Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluation or autism assessment in Kansas City can be quite anxiety-provoking for parents. However, my process for this evaluation is meant to be compassionate, while also being thorough and clinical so that your child and family attain the answers, and the support, you need.

Proper evaluation and diagnoses are important for individuals with a potential Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Specific forms of treatment and intervention, as well as early intervention, is highly important. Differential diagnoses are considered as well as other potential diagnoses related to Autism Spectrum Disorders in order to provide the most accurate conclusions.

Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations and diagnoses are made in accordance with the criteria published by the American Psychiatric Association in their Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.


When completing Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations, I will take the following common behaviors into consideration:

  • Showing a lack of attention to others
  • Language development
  • Pragmatic or social language development
  • Early history of symptoms
  • Nonverbal and verbal communication behavioral patterns
  • Deficits in social relationships
  • Deficits in social interactions
  • Repetitive behaviors
