Autism Spectrum Evaluations

Dr. Gifford performs evaluations to assess for Autism Spectrum Disorder in children as young as 12 months old.  The evaluations are conducted in the office and include observations of the child, administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2), a dagnostic interview, parent questionnaires, and teacher questionnaires (if applicable).  Dr. Gifford has participated in intensive ADOS-2 training with the Emory Autism Center.  She does not utilize psychometrists or psychological testing technicans and instead completes all assessments herself.   Dr. Gifford is also in the process of being contracted with Babies Can't Wait to conduct autism evaluations for children under the age of 3.

All complete assessments include an intake session with the parent/guardian, all testing sessions needed, and a feedback session with the parent/guardian to review the results and discuss recommendations.
