Accurate Diagnosis and Early Identification
Autism varies widely in its severity and symptoms. A correct diagnosis and early identification considerably increase the odds of optimal results by providing appropriate educational supports, treatments, and intervention at an early stage.
Autism can only be officially diagnosed by an expert. Getting your child an official diagnosis is vital for two reasons. First, the government and insurance companies may be able to provide your child with assistance and services. Second, there are additional disorders that are linked to autism but require distinct therapies that need to be watched out for. Following an autism diagnosis, Our Waystone psychologists will work with the healthcare team for evaluation and therapy recommendations.
When a child is diagnosed with autism, speech and behaviour therapy, medical advice, and other supports are often recommended to help with prognosis and quality of life. According to research, early intervention is more likely to result in favourable outcomes than treatment received later in life or not at all.
