Autism Testing and Treatment

Pathways Group Counseling Center is equipped to assess and treat autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders across the lifespan through gold-standard autism evaluation measures.

Our practice utilizes research reliable and empirically valid testing measures.  We are proud to use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2), which is a standardized, semi-structured play assessment that measures social interaction, communication, and imaginative play skills. The ADOS-2 was developed to aid in diagnosing autism across a wide range of chronological and mental ages, and consists of five different modules, each developed for a different developmental stage and language level. Testing age range is 12 months through adult.

Therapist Angie Welch, LMFT and certified autism specialist, provides the following as needed:

  • Observation at school
  • Four-appointment minimum for sessions and testing
  • Standardized test results, as well as observational reports
  • Treatment recommendations
  • Parent packet following the rendering of results

Pathways Group Counseling Center is committed to providing personalized therapies for individuals navigating life with autism, as well as their families and loved ones. Our team strives to help navigate the disorder, provide tools for progress, and strengthen relationships.
