Diagnostic Developmental Assessments:

1to1’s Psychologist collaborates with the interdisciplinary team (Speech-Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist and Board Certified Behaviour Analyst) to provide a developmental assessment using the most up to date assessment tools and evidence based research.

If your child is suspected of having Autism Spectrum Disorder, a semi-structured assessment of communication, social interaction and play is conducted using the “Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule Second Edition” (ADOS-2) and other measures. Your child’s communication skills, problem-solving, play skills, social skills, motor skills, and daily living skills will be assessed to determine if your child meets the criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder – Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

You will receive information about your child’s strengths and weaknesses, sensory profile and individualized treatment recommendations. This information will aid in the development of a treatment plan to best meet the needs of your child. Each family will be assigned a care coordinator at no cost that will provide advice, support and aid in navigating public and private services. You will not be in this alone as 1to1 provides a network of therapists and connects families with available resources.
