Many families currently face extreme wait times for professional diagnostic evaluations. The Young Learners Group is now providing this service to children from 12 months through adults  as our commitment to providing or finding effective treatment for all.

As part of The Learning Lane’s commitment to provide effective treatment to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders we now offer diagnostic evaluations for those with suspected or known Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses to confirm or rule out an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis or to update other assessment information. {provided for children from 12 months through adults; diagnostic services are billed through insurance}

In our comprehensive Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations we utilize the “gold standard” assessment tools: Autism Diagnostic Observation Scheduled, Second Edition (ADOS-2), and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R), in addition to a diagnostic interview and several other informal assessments (BASC-3, CARS2, ABAS-3, ASRS).
