Autism Evaluation for Patients in New Jersey

Because autism is a spectrum, the range and severity of symptoms that sufferers experience is quite varied. Children with severe autism may require around-the-clock care, be unable to speak and require assistance with almost every daily living activity. In contrast, children at the milder end of the spectrum may find that they are able to work around their symptoms to live relatively independently while achieving highly in education and social environments. Studies show that early intervention can improve the outcomes for autistic children, which is why we recommend prompt autism assessment.

Asperger’s Neuropsychological Testing

Although Asperger’s is now no longer used as a separate diagnosis to autism (people displaying Asperger’s symptoms are often referred to as having high functioning autism), Asperger’s neuropsychological assessment can be a good idea for children that appear “quirky” or that have difficulty in relating to their peers successfully. An Asperger’s neuropsychological evaluation can help parents to discover whether autism is at the root of their child’s difficulties, or whether it can be eliminated and other potential reasons considered.
