Diagnostic Evaluation

The UW Autism Center provides diagnostic psychological evaluations for infants, children, adolescents, and adults who are thought to have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

In addition to psychological diagnoses, the assessments address medical conditions related to autism and provide recommendations for treatment, intervention, and educational planning. We will also assess additional behaviors that may be consistent with an ASD and current issues that may impact the individual's well-being.

  • Evaluations typically occur over three to four scheduled appointments at the clinic and include caregiver interview; review of medical, social, academic, and developmental history; teacher and caregiver questionnaires, testing sessions with the individual, and a comprehensive feedback meeting. Appointments can be modified to suit each individual's needs.
  • Evaluations include an individualized, written evaluation summary with comprehensive recommendations and resources.
  • Follow-up consultation to assist with the implementation of IEP goals and teaching strategies is also available.

Please note: Many of our research studies provide free diagnostic evaluations. To learn more about our studies and see if you qualify, please visit our research studies page here.
