autism spectrum disorders (ASD)

  If you are questioning if your child has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or are interested in a second opinion evaluation, you have come to the right place, as I possess extensive clinical training and experience with diagnosing ASD. Additionally, I have considerable experience with the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS).

  I am also able to provide BHRS or "wraparound" evaluations to help determine if your child would qualify for these services. See the child services page for more information.

  If you are interested in learning more about BHRS/ Wrap around services, more information can be obtained from the Pennsyvania Department of Public Welfare web site - Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) and answers the following questions:

  • What are "wraparound" services?
  • How are services decided?
  • Who provides services?
  • When and where do services occur?
  • What do services look like?
  • How can my child get services?
  • What wraparound is not.
  • Why does my child need wraparound services when I already have education services?

  Our first visit.

  Currently, I am only seeing clients in the morning hours during the week.  If this works for you and you decide you are ready to schedule an appointment, please feel free to visit the forms page on this web site, print and fill out the CHILD forms. This is not a requirement, but it may help save time during the first appointment, and it will help you become familiar with some of the information that will be covered.

  Whether you complete the forms or not, it is necessary to contact me, preferably by phone, to arrange an initial,in person, meeting.
