Autism Diagnostic Assessment Program
The LAF Autism Diagnostic Assessment Program utilizes a Multi–Disciplinary Autism Support Team made up of 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. MUSC provides diagnostic assessments for children 3 years old and younger.
LAF has the capability to assess children from 18 months and up, but based on optimizing limited resources and to provide the LAF service area with a full, all age, autism assessment capability, LAF will make children who are 4 years old or older the focus of the LAF Autism Diagnostic Assessment Program.
