Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a term used to describe what used to several related disorders: Autism, Aspergers’s, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. These three disorders now exist on a “Spectrum,” with individuals presenting a range of symptoms, abilities, and disabilities. One key characteristic of all Spectrum disorder is a delay or lack in social interaction. This may include a child failing to make eye contact, inability to use language/speech, failure to express wants and/or needs, or giving attention to others. Some other symptoms may include heightened sensitivity to light, sound, or textures, as well as repetitive, or stereotyped behaviors.
Our San Antonio center offers diagnostic evaluations as a service to families that are concerned about the development of their children. Many local pediatricians will refer patients to our SA center so that we can perform the ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – version 2) evaluation. This 45-60 minute session is used as a key tool by diagnosticians (like a pediatrician, behavioral pediatrician, or child neurologist) to determine whether a child should be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Action Behavior Centers’ primary role, though, is offering the highest-quality Applied Behavior Analysis therapy in San Antonio, Texas.
