Diagnostic Assessments

Understanding your child’s needs through regular assessments conducted by the industry experts.

What Is a Diagnostic Assessment?

A diagnostic assessment is a test conducted with a psychologist to create a care plan. Once your child has been diagnosed with autism, an initial assessment will establish a baseline of information about their progress, needs, and abilities. Regular assessments also give us metrics for tracking progress, understanding development, and measuring goals.  

How Does Diagnostic
Testing Work?

A diagnostic assessment helps you and your child’s treatment team understand your child’s current abilities and needs. At Waypoints, we prioritize learning skills and accomplishing goals, so we conduct an assessment to identify the current baseline for your child, as we seek to teach the tools they need to succeed.

Diagnostic testing is done by a psychologist; at Waypoints, they’re done by masters-level psychologist.
