Multi-Disciplinary Autism Support Team

The Multi–Disciplinary Autism Support Team utilizes multiple clinical disciplines, working as a team, to conduct autism assessments and if warranted, to make a DSM V diagnosis of autism or autism spectrum disorders. The Team has been trained in administering the ADOS assessment tool at the Emory Autism Center, Emory University. LAF’s assessment process is a coordinated and collaborative effort with the Medical University of South Carolina.




Autism is the fastest–growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
