The evaluation process begins with an initial visit to record all parent concerns, discuss past medical history, observe the child, and go over standardized questionnaires which parents and possibly teachers have completed online. Additional visits are required for testing.
Dr. Rios is assisted by Ashley Fink CPNP, Bill Palmer MHNP-BC, and Lawanna Smith Early Childhood Specialist. The data from all visits will be interpreted by Dr. Rios who will summarize, prepare a report and meet with the family to finalize recommendations.
Based on new research of Autism Assessments we are adding the Mullen Scales of Early Learning as part of our Autism Assessments to help us recommend the intensity of intervention.
