Where do we begin? The Community Outreach efforts of both AutismLink and the Autism Center of Pittsburgh are amazing, if we do say so ourselves.
Not only do we help parents on a day-to-day basis with information, resources, referrals, and more, we provide opportunities for inclusion for families of children with autism spectrum disorders. Because we are owned and operated by parents, we know how it is -- we live your life so we know how you feel. Sometimes it’s hard to take your children out to a movie, or fishing, or to a party.
AutismLink & The Autism Center of Pittsburgh host events on a monthly basis to get you out and about with your children.
When you make an appointment for an evaluation at the Autism Center of Pittsburgh, a Licensed Psychologist or Board Certified Psychiatrist will conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment. The evaluation process will include an interview with the parent/guardian to obtain a thorough history and an understanding of current functioning; use of standardized tests and forms including the ADOS ; and an assessment and observation of your child. You will then be provided a complete formulation, recommendations, and a comprehensive report. The practitioner will not conduct a medical evaluation for genetic disorders, etc., but will conduct an evaluation to determine if your child has autism, ADHD, OCD, A Behavioral, Anxiety, or Mood Disorder, or any other developmental delay or disability. Through the Autism Center of Pittsburgh, the practitioner can also assess for learning issues. You will then be referred for specific and effective forms of treatment, and provided ongoing consultation as needed. The licensed clinicians have years of experience in diagnosing and treating autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, OCD, mood and behavioral problems, learning issues, and many other developmental disabilities.
Autism Center of Pittsburgh also will refer you to Licensed and Credentialed counselors, specializing in treating autism, to work with children and adults. Appointments available during day, evening, and weekends.
