Life on the autism spectrum represents a unique journey for every child.
The signs of autism spectrum disorder look different for every child, for every stage of life.
For parents and caregivers, concern that communication problems, disinterest in others, tantrums, or issues with independence may be symptoms of a developmental disorder can be overwhelming. When there’s no clear path to understanding early signs of autism, it can lead to stress and frustration for you and your child.
Early intervention is clinically proven to help children with developmental delays grow to their greatest potential. A neurodevelopmental assessment can help you understand your child’s strengths, deficits, and reasons for struggle in certain settings, laying the foundation for a personalized treatment plan.
